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 our “Best of 2015” series, earlier we shared the script of Neeraj Ghaywan’s Masaan and Meghna Gulzar’s Talvar.


Navdeep Singh made his debut with a critically acclaimed film, Manorama Six Feet Under. But unfortunately, it didn’t work at the box office. This time, with NH10, he has scored on both the counts – box office as well critical acclaim. A revenge thriller which constantly kept you on the edge as things become murkier, darker, and completely unpredictable. With its lead actor turning co-producer and backing the film all the way, it showed how it is possible to make content driven film in the right budget and make it work.

Film : NH10

Director : Navdeep Singh

    Not sure if the shooting script in itself is very useful – it is merely a version of the final film on paper. It would perhaps be more revealing to study the second or the third draft of the script, before Anushka Sharma decided to come on board and produce the film; I believe that will be far more nuanced, feature a more complex discussion of the class conflict resident in the film. This version – much like the film that is an illustration of it – is tailored to conveniently accommodate her stature within it and lies therefore completely tampered by star politics that have ruined more scripts in India than any other feature. I would like to think that her participation was incredibly detrimental, considering that a film with much potential seems reduced to a basic vendetta thriller where the protagonist walks away into the glorious sun at the end.
