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.
Neeraj Ghaywan stormed into the filmmaking scene this year with his debut film Masaan. Its journey started with selection at Cannes where it bagged two top awards, and it was followed by a release in India with the best reviews of the year.
So thanks to Neeraj Ghaywan and Varun Grover, we are the sharing the script of Masaan. This is the pre-shooting draft. It’s much longer than the film but will be interesting to read as editing and on-set improvs changed a lot of things. Happy reading!
