A question to begin with. Consider life as a building where you have been stranded on the ground floor while all the lift doors leading to the floors of success have been shut on your face, what would you do? Well, our Faltus would create such a basement that the floors above look cheerless and dreary. Faltu is a story of coming of age of today’s youth. They don’t choose a different path but create one. Inspired by Mr. Nek Chand (the creator of the famous Rock Garden in Chandigarh) the film exhibits how the discarded waste of the society when channelized smartly can create a Rock Garden and become the pride of the nation. Faltu is a story about a group of friends that are considered a total waste. The cherry on the cake being that they take pride in the fact. These hard-working back-benchers are hardly seen working. They crowd up the clubs of the town while the lecture halls remain empty. However a turn in their life leads them to such a situation where fates of many more like them comes in their hands. What follows is a roller coaster ride where these “Good for nothing” people realize their true worth. They discover their niche and we see these dark pieces of coal transforming into diamonds. However gaining self respect and expertise in their respective fields isn’t enough. They have a bigger battle to win. They have to earn the same respect in the eyes of the society that still treats them as waste. In a thrilling climax, they compete with the best students of the country and show the world that being a FALTU isn’t that bad. In fact it’s a compliment from here on.
