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, Hansal Mehta and Vikramaditya Motwane, we have been able to post the script of Kai Po Che!, Shahid, Lootera – here, here and here respectively.

Nikhil Advani burst into the scene with a terrific debut, Kal Ho Na Ho. Rarely someone gets everything so pitch perfect in a debut film, and that too when done in mainstream space. But since then he has not been able to repeat its success. This year he found his mojo back with D Day, but by going out of the space in which he has been making films so far. Unlike any of his previous films, this one was a taut edge of the seat thriller, specially the flawless first half. And when every damn song looks the same in every damn film these days, he gave us one of the best set pieces in Alvida. Who says we don’t need songs in a thriller?

Thanks to Advani, we are posting two drafts of D Day – one is the first draft and the other is the shooting draft. Read, share, learn and have fun.

Film – D Day

Screenplay – Nikhil Advani, Suresh Nair, Ritesh Shah

Dialogue – Ritesh Shah, Niranjan Iyengar
