Script of Anurag Kashyap’s Dev D

If you religiously follow the movement of film scripts in blogosphere, you must be aware that the script of QT’s Inglourious Basterds was out almost a year before he started shooting. He did the same with Django Unchained. And that’s not a rare case. There are blogs and websites dedicated to script reviews/news/sales. And since last few years they have the Black List too.

Compare this to the script scenario here. Writers/directors guard it as if it’s life and death scenario. Almost scared to give it out to anyone even after the film has released. And then we find it difficult to churn out even some five good films in a year. I still haven’t been able to figure that out. Though most would happily brag about sending their scripts to Oscar library which is another stupid achievement if you know the truth.

We keep on asking many filmmakers and screenwriters to share their scripts so that we can put it online. Some do, some never get back, most don’t give a fck. If you have missed, we had earlier put the script of Vikramaditya Motwane’s debut feature Udaan (click here) and now we are sharing the script of Anurag Kashyap’s Dev D. Thanks, AK.

Dev D got almost every possible reaction from critics – it was rated everything between 1 and 5 stars. Everything. If you don’t believe me, google. Some of the reviews are listed here .

Interesting thing about Kashyap’s films are that they are never the same which you see on paper. They go through some drastic changes while shooting. Plus, music played a big role in Dev D. So, it will be interesting if you compare the script to the film. Though am not sure which draft/version of the script i have got. It’s written by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane. Read and have fun.

(PS – Was feeling lazy. Copy-pasted the intro from Udaan script post. Sorry about that)

    Thanks a lot! As you said, Hindi film scripts are very difficult to get – so this is great! Imtiaz Ali had shared Jab We Met script sometime back on his FB page. Maybe you can ask him if he’d like to have it shared on this forum.

    Fundoo. Thanks a lot to Anurag & you.
    The booklet with the Rockstar audio CD probably had some excerpts from the script – a really different way of writing – detailing the emotions the characters were feeling. Would love to read that one if you can ask IA.

  34. Quora says:

    Are hindi movie scripts written in Hindi?

    It mostly depends on the generation of screenwriters. Before 2000, almost all the Hindi film scripts were written entirely in Hindi as most of the writers belonged to an older generation. I remember Farhan Akhtar talking about how he wrote Dil Chahta H…
