About Movie:- Mere Dost Picture Abhi Baki Hai is the journey of Amar Joshi who runs a video library in banaras and aspires to be a film maker. Despite facing objection from his father Amar Joshi decides to sell his video library and join a film Institute in London.Amar & Monty take help of star secretary Gupta ji (Akhil Mishra) to convince Mohini & her starry mother Mummy ji who agrees to do the film. To start with, the concept of a film within a film sounds interesting, but the manner in which the drama unfolds looks amateurish, while its interpretation by director Rajnish Raj Thakur lacks the punch, barring a few sequences in the first half. What also makes the movie-going experience cumbersome is the fact that some scenes are abruptly cut or stretched for no particular reason, especially towards the second half the entire Shayan Munshi-Shawar Ali track is tedious], and the laughs are scarce. Sure, a few witty lines do bring a smile on your face, but the negatives outweigh the positives here.
Movie Review:- Aspiring director struggles for his first Bollywood break and ends up in a humorous look at behind-the-scenes. Bollywood, in twisted fashion. Director Rajnish Raj Thakur, attempts a behind-the-scenes of Bollywood - an depiction, a reality check of sorts, but eventually rolls out a mash-up of an incomplete showreel.
Direction, Performance and Music:- Sunil Shetty tries to act well as Amar Joshi. Rajpal Yadav, as Suraj, is one who does his best. Udita Goswami is good as the “star” Mohini. The thought behind the story is good but the director/scriptwriter’s movie gets worn out by the people in the industry.
Overall:- As it is, it is a forgetful film with vulgar dialogues that pass for humour, Only Rajpal Yadav’s earnest acting that is saving grace.
