It is set in those days when modes of communication were still evolving, maybe the World Wide Web wasn’t even launched in the US, and so the mobiles and the internet weren’t even thought of. There was a time when letters – the snail mail and Airmail letters, telegrams and the old telephone (usually owned by the privileged few) used to be the only means of communication. It was the era of typewriters (a machine to type official letters before computers were introduced). Parents Mukund and Sudha (Sachin Khedekar, Tanvi Azmi) get too engrossed with Vidur and leave a feeling o ....

FALTU - movie review
F.A.L.T.U. - movie review 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 ....
