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 ...

Where were the Cameos ?
1 April 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I had not seen Steve Pink's Accepted, so I can't say to what extent F.A.L.T.U was copied. But I have heard that it is a complete Rip off.

F.A.L.T.U was as predictable as it gets. The humor is not at all humorous (barring a few punches). It was the same old film regarding the shortcomings of education system presented a bit differently. The only thing you will remember when you walk out of theaters is the last performance, its simply superb, hats off to Remo for such good choreography (though it too was copied from a talent search).

Remo was only good as a choreographer in the film. His directing was hardly impressive. Acting was ordinary, songs were good (but there were too many of them,which made them irritating). Screenplay was bad. In short it was a debut gone wrong.

I would rate it 3/10 And Where were the Cameos ?
