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, Vikramaditya Motwane and Nikhil Advani, we have been able to post the script of Kai Po Che!, Shahid, Lootera, D Day – hereherehere and here respectively.

Ritesh Batra’s The Lunchbox has been one of the most critically acclaimaed and successful film of the year. It’s still running in US and few other territories. It’s been a long time since an Indian film manage to go beyond the diaspora crowd and The Lunhcbox set a new benchmark in that regard.

Thanks to Ritesh Batra, we are posting the script of The Lunchbox. Since its US release was due, we could not post it earlier.
