F.A.L.T.U. - Movie Review

Strictly for those with FALTU time

F.A.L.T.U. - Movie Review
The ApunKaChoice movie review of F.A.L.T.U. The Pink Floyd dictum “We don’t need no education, we don’t need no thoughts control” usually appeals to two sets of youngsters - geniuses or failures. Choreographer-turned-director Remo D’Souza’s film F.A.L.T.U. is about the latter.

Jackky Bhagnani, Pooja Gupta and Angad Bedi play three academically challenged youths who are rejected by every institute and university because of their low grades. So in a flash of uncharacteristic brilliance, they hit upon the idea of launching their own university and quite appropriately name it Fakirchand And Lakirchand Trust University or F.A.L.T.U.

Helping them like a Santa is a guy named Google (Arshad Warsi) who is incredibly resourceful. He provides the palatial building for the university, arranges for its renovation, furniture and other sundry but not paltry expenses without a hiccup. In short, Google has the solution for every problem. And there’s also Baajirao (Ritesh Deskhmukh), the principal of FALTU, who takes personal initiative in guiding the young under-achievers on how to express love to a girl, that too Shahrukh Khan style.

With its growing popularity FALTU becomes the adda for the rejects of formal education system. It’s the place where students booze, flirt, and dance in swimming pools in the state of semi-undress.

Of course, there’s no sense to be made of the story as director Remo D’Souza aims solely to entertain the viewers with repeated interludes into foot-tapping songs. There’s also an attempt to squeeze in a little message about the education system but it’s all done with fun and frivolity. D’Souza can also be forgiven for ripping off the Hollywood comedy ‘Accepted’ because when the big shot directors of the industry copy blatantly, expecting a newcomer to be original is like asking for moon.

FALTU is not a film that requires polished performances. Jackky Bhagnani gets the second lifeline of his career with this film and he tries to be funny and cool and hip and also show off his gym body. Among others Angad Bedi leaves an impression.

One thing that works slightly in the film’s favour is the songs and their choreography. The humour is mostly puerile and hardly makes you laugh.

All in all, a timepass film with a over-egging of youth factor.
