F.A.L.T.U is a Hindi energetic comedy film directed by Remo D'Souza and produced by Vashu Bhagnani under the banner Puja Entertainment Ltd. It is a remake of the 2006 comedy, Accepted. Wikipedia
It doesn't help that the singularly unattractive cast doesn't have one acting bone between them, and that the film feels much longer than its roughly two hours running time.
The young gang is watchable, even if they are made to swap sense for a few broad laughs. The best of the lot is Chandan Roy Sanyal, so good as the dopehead in ‘Kaminey’. He stands out, even at his silliest.
The problem with F.A.L.T.U lies in its tone. It doesn't know whether to unfold as a full blown comedy or take itself seriously by providing some gyan on the education system.
Most mistake their clothes for attitude. I just worry for the heavy icons we offer them, and lessons we dole out. Step into this employment exchange entertainment.
An ambitious sophomore story of scholastically dim students coursing an almost impossible journey to prove their worth, enrolling for once in FALTU, might not be a faltu idea after all.
Stray bits of F.A.L.T.U feel sincere but the film is so staggeringly moronic that you walk out completely exhausted. I’m going with one and a half star.
For a film that you don’t expect much from, FALTU over-delivers. Watch it if you are looking for some mindless fun.
On the whole, F.A.L.T.U. has an entertaining first half and an average second half. With hit music as its trump card and coming as it does after a dull period of no big releases (in March), it will prove to be an earning proposition.
On the whole, F.A.L.T.U. banks heavily on the formula that the youth loves. It's funny, energetic and has a big ace in its smash hit musical score. I would go to the extent of saying that the movie works because it doesn't pretend to be path-breaking. It offers what the audience desires: Entertainment!
F.A.L.T.U. is a sincere attempt which asks the right questions about our education system. And yes, it's not at all F.A.L.T.U..
To sum up, is Faltu the thing to opt for to start off the now revived film season and to celebrate India’s victory? Yes! It may have technical faults here and there but from a bird’s eye view it’s a complete film that is not to be missed. Although a youthful entertainer, it’s a film for the whole family and one that parents’ truly ought to see. So, don’t be faltu any longer and don’t miss out on Faltu!
