Ultimately, who do you think is the biggest contributor to a successful film: the scriptwriter or the director?

Piyush Srivastav BOTH. According to me it's the script and the direction that decides the fate of the film. If a script is good but the director fails to project that onto his work then it's the end product that suffers. Likewise, if a reputed director picks up a script which hardly has anything in it which can be considered as good then again it's the film that collapses. So the credit, responsibility are all equally divided between both, the writer and the director.

Aditya Nair A script is the backbone of the movie so the scriptwriter should be given due credit, which is most often not the case. "You can't make a good movie with a bad script but you can make a bad movie with a good script". In both these cases the weight lies on the scriptwriter who certainly no doubt the biggest contributor to a successful film.

Vijay H Thanki Is the guy who wrote the business plan the biggest contributor or the one who implemented it into an empire? What makes a pizza: the cheese or the base? Coz without the cheese its just veggies on bread and without the base its just veggies with cheese. That just sums up the whole situation with the scriptwriter and the director. When we are talking about a visual medium like film, i think we should hold the director responsible. I'm not saying the scriptwriter is of no importance, in fact he is of the most importance. Content is King but a King is only a King when he is sitting on a throne. A bad director will make a good king [script] sit on a stool [poor visual representation] and end up loosing everything. A good director has the ability to dress up the poorest peasant and present him as the most powerful King. Ultimately it is the director because the film is what the director wants it to be. Hold him responsible for the failure or success of a film.
