If you're an aspiring writer, reading the scripts of some of the most talented writers in the Hindi film industry is a great way to hone your craft. It also tells you a lot about the writer's vision for the film before the cameras began rolling. Film Companion will now bring you a collection of some of the best screenplays in Bollywood. We start with three of the most well made and diverse narratives of 2016 - Neerja, Pink and Kapoor & Sons.
In Neerja, writers Saiwyn Quadras and Sanyukta Chawla, reimagine the last few hours of 23 year old PanAm flight purser Neerja Bhanot's life. Ritesh Shah's terrifying story of three single, working women in Delhi shakes you to the core. And filmmaker-writer Shakun Batra and hairstylist Ayesha Devitre gave us real and loveable characters in the family drama Kapoor & Sons.
We hope to keep enriching our library with the original screenplays of many of our modern classics. These can be easily accessed by a simple click of the button. If you have special requests for scripts you'd like to read, do write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll make an honest attempt at sourcing them for you.
