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-commercial exercise.
In India, we haven’t made too many ‘investigative thrillers’. Meghna Gulzar’s Talvar was not only a refreshing change which explored this space, but it looked closely at one of the most talked about double murder case in recent history. It was a fine line to tread on, but with Vishal Bhardwaj’s sparkling writing, and a brilliant ensemble cast, Meghna delivered one of the best films of the year.
Here’s the script of Talvar. Happy reading!
Film : Talvar
Director : Meghna Gulzar
