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 only because some of the screenwriters and 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.

Ashim Ahluwalia’s Miss Lovely was easily one of the best films of the year. A film so strong in its atmosphere, it makes you feel you are in the middle of that era where the story is set. And that’s what sets this film distinctly apart from the rest. Smoke-filled rooms, garish costumes, sleaze in every corner – you could almost smell the walls and feel the claustrophobia of the B-movie world created by the filmmaker.

So thanks to Ashim Ahluwalia, we are the sharing the script of Miss Lovely. This is the original English version, without the Hindi dialogues.

In our “Best Of 2014” series, here are the other film scripts that we have shared so far – Ankhon Dekhi is here, Queen is here, and for Dedh Ishqiya, click here.

    I wouldn’t know if it was done on the editing table or how early a draft this is, but thanks for sharing such an educative piece. The film is such an improvement over this draft. Almost every scene, entry, and exit improved upon in the final film. Especially, the last parts in the prison cell and the parts thereof.
    The one Indian independent filmmaker out there strutting at par with the bigwigs of world cinema. More power to Ashim Ahluwalia.

      thanks i’m a huge huge fan of this film. and agreed that this screenplay is not a patch on the final film. If this was made the way it was written it would have probably made a lot more money in the multiplex box office as the story is very clear and linear but it would have been far far removed from the classic that miss lovely is destined to become in the future. once again, many thanks!!
