First-time filmmaker and director Ashok Ahuja has made a film about a director making a film -- undoubtedly following the adage that it is better to stick with something you know in any attempt at fiction. The director in the film is busy trying to get a writer to agree to work with him on his next project, based on one of the writer's own stories. No matter how persistent he is, the writer does not keep his original promise to join with the director and drops him for another, more lucrative venture. In spite of this setback, the director does not give up and writes and produces his own story. Both his film and this film end at about the same time, as the director is waiting for everyone to come out of the theater -- and give some feedback on his creation.
