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.

To read the scripts of best bollywood films of last few years, click here. For this year, so far we have posted the script of Neerja. And here’s the script of Kapoor & Sons.

Shakun Batra’s Kapoor & Sons was not just commercially successful and critically acclaimed, but it scored a rare achievement. His sophomore feature better was than his assured debut, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. Most filmmakers in bollywood falter after making an impressive debut.  What’s also praiseworthy is the way the film presented its stars and characters. A leading character in mainstream bollywood film was gay without being caricatured and a leading star was seen in a supporting role.  No wonder that this film is in everyone’s list of top films of the year.

Film : Kapoor & Sons

Director : Shakun Batra

Written by :  Ayesha DeVitre and Shakun Batra
