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.

7 | Good, Enjoyable film with strong message.
27 July 2016 | by spandan888See all my reviews

This film is a story of a few students who after getting the marks just above the passing percentage are refused admission in every college. They then decide to make a fake university by the name F.A.L.T.U. (faltu meaning useless) to save their faces in front of their parents. Trouble starts when actual students with a similar dilemma arrive at their college.

The story is straight forward, with no romance side stories, there are a lot of songs and dances, but it adds to the fun.

The actors are fresh faces, with Arshad Warsi and Reitesh Deshmukh playing their mentors. The acting is of acceptable standards.

Overall the important message of following your heart especially if the education system has failed to appreciate their other talents is portrayed in positive manner.
