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 of 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.

Rajat Kapoor’s Ankhon Dekhi is easily one of the best films this year. It has made it to the top of the year end list of many critics, filmmakers and our post too. Rajat has always been known for writing and directing unusual and interesting stories. But this time, the film really went beyond just the interesting premise. So here’s the script of Ankhon Dekhi in our “Best of 2014” list.

Thanks to Rajat Kapoor for sharing it. We have Ankhon Dekhi’s script in its pre-shooting original draft.

Do click on the “Scripts” tab on the top right corner of the blog page to access all the other scripts (Queen, The Lunchbox, Shahid, Kai Po Che, D Day, Lootera, Kahaani, Ek Main Aur Ek Tu, Agent Vinod, Dev D etc) that we have posted here so far.

    Not cribbing about these wonderful shares, but is there a reason that you use Scribd specifically ? It is a hassle to download the PDF. I feel Google Docs Embedder plugin for WordPress does a wonderful job of embedding document files – despite allowing downloads of the documents too. There is an Embed PDF plugin for WordPress too –
    This is just a suggestion to allow other filmmakers and students to read these wonderful scripts on their preferred devices instead of having to view it through Scribd, which has a dreadful user interface.
    Lastly, a major thanks to you guys for this great service that you render us.

    @Dhaval – Had no clue about google documents. Friends told us about Scribd and we loved it because it’s very simple to upload and embed. Thanks for the info about google doc. We will try it out next. btw why is it hassle to download from scribd? Just open an account and upload any random paper. You will get to download any script.

    • Dhaval Soni says:

      Everytime I wish to download something from Scribd, I need to upload something on that site. While these may sound like fair terms and conditions for the owners of Scribd, I don’t find it to be a fair justification to download a simple document. It might not sound like big hassle really, but just feels like a better idea to not rely on third party services and host your script collection on your own servers. I’m trying to write a script for my film, so scripts serve as food to me. I love what you guys do, and I’d be glad to help in any way I can.

        @Dhaval just tried uploading another script on google docs. Seems quite painful to me. Plus, its changing the hindi dialogues to english (roman) as the language selected is english for all. That’s strange. Compared to the experience at google docs, scribd is nursery kid’s play. Or maybe was doing it all wrong on docs.

        • Dhaval Soni says:

          Pardon me for insisting. I’ll take a look at them and get back to you soon. Just a quick question – By changing the hindi dialogues to roman english, do you mean that the PDF contains the hindi parts in devnagiri script, which it is translating to english ?

          Just trying to tick checkboxes here.
          1. Did you upload the entire google-document-embedder folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory ?
          2. Did you activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress ?
          Plz note that you don’t need to upload the PDF to Google Docs. The PDF sources from your wordpress folder and uses the Google Docs Viewer that you previously installed.
          3. When editing the post you want the .pdf in, use the usual Upload/Insert button to upload your .pdf file.
          4. Instead of clicking “Insert Into Post” make sure you copy the File Url, then you can close the media upload window.
          5. Click the “G” icon on your toolbar. Paste the url into the field and configure any of the options such as dimensions and whether you want your readers to have the ability to download the file itself.
          6. Click Insert and the plugin will generate and insert a shortcode into your post. When you Publish the post you should see the embedded PDF in the post.
          I’m highly positive that this works because I used to embed PDFs on my own site(which I just stopped a few months back).
          Here’s hoping this works ! 🙂

        I share dhavals view. Reading and collecting film scripts one of my hobby and scribd does raise a bit of moral dilemma; upload just any (useless?) document!!

    @dhaval Boss, thanks for it but looks too much. Will continue with scribd only. Phir kabhi 🙂

    How can I download the script? I don’t see a download tab.
