As we have done in the past, this year too we are trying to source the scripts of some of the best bollywood 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 bollywood trade terms, this was not a pre-release or weekend-numbers film. The title was Pink and the poster had three actresses who are really not big names. But apart from turning out to be one of the most profitable films of the year and receiving universal critical acclaim, it also gave us this year’s most powerful cinema slogan – No means no. Ritesh Shah’s writing and Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s direction made sure that the audience remained glued to the screen.
(Please do note that this is not the final shooting draft of the film. Some dialogues were changed during the shoot. But we thought this will be a good learning exercise – to compare the notes between the film and the script)
