2012Rewind :Script of Sujoy Ghosh’s Kahaani

Sujoy Ghosh‘s Kahaani was easily one of the best reviewed films of the year. Also, a rare Hindi film with a female character in the lead, and that too a pregnant one. And the best part – it proved the trade pundits wrong by scoring a big number at the box office.

Unlike most Bollywood directors who run away or go into hiding once their film has released, Sujoy happily took all the criticism and presented his side of the story when we met him post-release. I hope more directors will learn how to talk post-release and not just pre-release.

Since we don’t have any culture of “script database” in this country (and some like VVC want to make money out of it! Remember 3 Idiots? ), we have been trying to put as many scripts online as we can. So Dear Bollywood, make money from films and share the script! Learn from the greatest filmmakers of the world. Nobody has lost anything by sharing knowledge. Forget the masterclasses, this is the least you can do.

And thanks to Sujoy again for sharing the script of Kahaani with us. This one is very early draft and has been improved  upon many fold by adding and deleting many scenes. Once you read it, you will get to know.

The script shared here is only for educational purpose and is a completely non-commercial initiative.
