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 ...

Things go berserk when 4 youngsters' plan to cope with their bad grades results in FALTU
1 April 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

OK. I passed my schooling, but the problem is with the threshold marks!! 37%, 40% and 42%!! It is for sure that I won't be accepted in any college. So, what needs to be done? F.A.L.T.U. is how Ritesh and gang try to hide their rejection. A Fakirchand And Lakirchand Trust University created overnight, with advertisement in newspapers, a website, admission letters and a different kind of Principal (Ritesh Deshmukh) with the help of Google (Arshad Warsi). OK. Everything done. But soon the trouble starts brewing up when they realize that there are other FALTUs too and that too in the same campus!!

Go for Faltu for a refreshing take in Indian cinema. It's college all the way after 3 Idiots. Although not up to that mark, but still a good treat for the vacations. Music's good. Newcomer Puja Gupta lives to her performance, but still the lagging point is the acting. A good story plot and screenplay simply fail to overshadow poor performances, even by the veterans like Arshad Warsi and Ritesh Deshmukh.
