As we have done in the past, this year too we are trying to source the scripts of some of the best films of the year. As most of you know, the scripts of Hollywood films are easily available online, even the unreleased ones. But we don’t have any such database for Hindi or Indian films. So that has been the primary reason for this initiative. And it has been possible because some of the filmmakers have been very supportive about it. It’s only for educational purpose and much like the spirit of the blog, is a complete non-profitable exercise. Thanks to Abhishek Kapoor and Hansal Mehta, we have been able to post the script of Kai Po Che! and Shahid here and here.

Lootera has been a subject of much debate and discussion on this blog. And if you are regular reader of this blog, you probably know that unlike other filmmakers Vikramaditya Motwane has always been gracious enough to take it in the right spirit. He has also been much supportive of this endeavor to share scripts publicly and helped us by sharing the script of his film Udaan earlier. If you haven’t read the script, it’s here.

In this post, we are sharing the two drafts of Vikramaditya Motwane’s Lootera – the second draft of the script (in English) and the shooting draft of the film (Hindi dialogues).

Film – Lootera

Story – Inspired by O. Henry’s The Last Leaf

Screenplay – Bhavani Iyer and Vikramaditya Motwane

Dialogue – Anurag Kashyap

  5. Hindi Movie script writing is no monopoly of anybody. There are many good script writers who do not get the chance to show their life blood good work in script writing. Otherwise, bollywood can make good theme-based movies people really want to see.
