Some films arrive too late in the day. MERE DOST PICTURE ABHI BAKI HAIN is one such film. This one has taken a really longgg time to hit the screens. Resultantly, its concept and also the humor, which might have worked when it was green-lit several years ago, look completely out of sync in the present scenario.
A number of films with Bollywood as the backdrop have been attempted in the past. Films like GUDDI, OM SHANTI OM, LUCK BY CHANCE and THE DIRTY PICTURE have tremendous recall value even today. But MERE DOST PICTURE ABHI BAKI HAIN, which attempts to reveal the murky frivolities within Bollywood, stands on a hackneyed screenplay, while the execution of the material is flimsy.
MERE DOST PICTURE ABHI BAKI HAIN traces the journey of Amar Joshi [Suniel Shetty], who runs a video library in Banaras and aspires to be a film-maker.

Amars film comes to a grinding halt when Monty suddenly disappears. Amar is summoned by Sudama Bhosle [Deepak Shirke], a don, who was financing his film. He wants Amar to complete his film and also wants him to cast his girlfriend [Mummait Khan]. Amar reluctantly agrees as he has no option. But as luck would have it, Sudama is shot dead and Amars film is stalled once again.
Meanwhile, Monty resurfaces and decides to make Amars film into a magnum opus. Hence, a successful writer of many hits, Mr. Baig [Om Puri], is brought on board. Once in, Mr. Baig takes over the reins of the film from Amar and changes it into a totally different film altogether.
