Artists are often not recognised within their lifetimes and their greatness is always undermined. At least,
that is what Mahesh uses as an excuse whenever anyone asks him “So, what is your plan for your life?”
In cohorts with his best friend Ajay, Mahesh sets out to make an “actually good film” but not all goes as
planned. The Artist follows these two filmmakers as they try to make their dream cinema project, while
navigating everything from family to porn-related computer viruses.
