Storyline

After barely making it through their Secondary School Certificate examinations, Ritesh Virani, whose father is a Kabadia, is unable to get admission in any college. He is not the only one though, his pals Pooja Nigam and Nanj Nair are also in the same leaky boat. They attempt in vain to secure admission through the father of their scholarly pal, Vishnu Vardhan. Then Ritesh's father decides to fire his hired help and get his son to do the work, and Pooja's dad decides to get her married, the desperate friends get together and concoct a fake college 'Fakirchand And Lakirchand Trust University', with the help of their money-lender friend, Google Chand. They recruit school-teacher, Baaji Rao, as Principal, whose performance is unacceptable by his school principal due to lewd references to 'Munni's Badnami' and 'Sheila's Jawani'. Google Chand offers them a derelict mansion in Panchgani, which they must renovate, invite their respective parents and show them that they have finally been ...

FALTU is primarily geared to tap the Generation-X multiplex audience (read that college crowd). It has everything to soothe their eyes and ears. Right from the hardships of being a student, goading parents, college gags, the rat-race of exam scores and of course foot tapping music.

FALTU has certain good moments thereby nearly ducking itself from being categorised as fully FALTU. Overall the concept works in pockets but not in entirety. Inspiration to 3-Idiots are visible, however to make it palatable the entire creative team should have indulged in progressive brainstorming exercise and questioned every aspect to better it. In the era of "India Shining" the education system needs a revamp and no two ways to that. But the ideas suggested/ recommended in FALTU are closer to mockery than plausibility.

The producer with big pockets has the might to re-launch the twinkle of his eye. Jr. Bhagnani fails to register a strong impact on a yardstick of star material. Puja Gupta can be aptly described as "out of sight, out of mind". Don't expect "Rolling on the floor laughing" comedy looking at names like Ritesh Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi & Boman Irani. Akbar Khan enacts poor man's Feroz Khan. Chandan Roy Sanyal has clearly accepted the assignment either for money or goodwill. Sushmita Sen, Mallika Sherawat & Mithun Da make a cameo appearance as a gratitude to Vashu Bhagnani.

"Party Abhi Baaki Hain" is sure to be a rage in the disc. Others might gain popularity over period of time. As a choreographer he is two-thumbs up, wish I could use that expression for Remo as a director.

PS: Expect launch ver 3.0 sometime soon.
