F.A.L.T.U. The Underdog

FaltuThe pressure to study is higher than ever today. Almost every single person is heading for an M.B.A. , including Doctors and Engineers.  In such a scenario what is a ‘weak’ student supposed to do?

F.A.L.T.U revolves around such students. Not interested in studying, barely passing examinations and then rejected from colleges. It starts off giving you an impression of a no-brainer comedy that’s trying to be college cool. Ritesh (Jacky Bhagnani), Nanj (Angad Bedi) and Pooja (Puja Gupta) are tagged as useless because of their academic disinterest and lackadaisical attitude.

To escape their parents’ fury and the threat of being disowned, Ritesh comes up with the idea of a fake college.  With the help of technology and media they make It believable enough for their parents. When a venue is required to be created overnight, they call Google (Arshad Warsi), 24hr help service for trouble creators. He provides the place; the 4 friends clean it up themselves and new college ready!

This brings a bigger problem at hand. Real students apply online and land up, and they Faltuwant a college. So Fakeerchand And Lakeerchand Trust University (read F.A.L.T.U) starts running with the blessings of venue provider Google, and initially fake Principal Bajirao (Riteish Deshmuskh).

After a bit of partying and ‘faltugiri’ they are brought on line by Ritesh, who generates a conscience after a visit to his father. They finally begin studying to make something of themselves. Not just through books, but experiments, trials and errors, videos and awareness. They tap their true talent, and pursue the subjects they love, naturally excelling at it.

The movie incorporates snippets of various prominent people from creative backgrounds, endorsing the study of such arts. What starts off as a directionless college comedy slowly progresses into an inspiring, path-breaking movie. With each step it transforms, as do the people in it. It raises some important questions, and gives hope to the youth.  There are details that are far-fetched and even impossible, but all that is insignificant compared to the truth in the last scene, which touches you. It lacks finesse and the actors are ametuer, but it’s still inspiring.

Faltu 

The music is peppy throughout and all the lyrics are relevant, with a few witty lines in there. The last song is moving, with a breathtaking choreography that mirrors the lyrics. As I wrap this up I must mention I was in a theatre filled with youngsters and the last half an hour induced applause and even a few tears. It makes you want to be you. 

If you give your heart wings, and believe in yourself, every dream is possible.

    I don’t know this movie again seems to me a total copy of the Hollywood hit Movie “Accepted” which follows the same story line. Though i am pretty much sure that many of us wouldn’t have seen Accepted movie yet, so it would turn out to be a good movie; but this movie again puts a big question mark on the CREATIVITY of the Bollywood filmmakers to create an INTERNATIONALLY APPEALING movie,that could be an international hit.

    Really a college like this is required in our education system to make geniuses rather than a fools with degrees. One line in the film by Ritesh (Jacky Bhagnani)i.e, if 35% is passing marks and admission’s eligibility is 70% then make passing marks as 70%. The geniuses are created after trial and error experiments merely not with the education & books. Edison failed 10K times before he discovered light. So friends become FALTU.
