Remo D’Souza’s film is autobiographical

Remo D'Souza

A lot of what you will see in F.A.L.T.U is based on the choreographer-director’s own experiences.


Remo is at the moment looking nervously at the release of his other directorial venture F.A.L.T.U. He describes it as an autobiographical look at the education system. “A lot of what you’ll see in Jackky Bhagnani’s character is me. I’ve made him do a lot of wild things in F.A.L.T.U. But not half as wild as some of the things I’ve done in my own younger aimless days. I was a mediocre student and my marks used to shame my parents. It took years for me to convince them that I wanted to be a choreographer.”


Remo is aware that F.A.L.T.U sounds like a carryover of 3 Idiots. “I had already started shooting F.A.L.T.U when I got to know about 3 Idiots. I immediately rang Raju Hirani up to ask. I was ready to scrap my film if it bore any resemblance to 3 Idiots. When Raju told me that my film was a different comment on our education system from what he was doing I breathed a sigh of relief and went ahead with my film.”


Now Remo will be screening the first complete print of F.A.L.T.U for Raju Hirani. “I want his opinion because he’s a terrific guy and a terrific director. And like 3 Idiots my film is also about the loopholes in our education system.”


Except that Raju never showed students drinking on campus. Remo has.


“Let’s face it. Kids today want to work hard and play hard. No point in making them do sneaky fun stuff when they can openly do what they like and not feel guilty about it,” opines Remo.
