    Target Disc Mode via Thunderbolt is the easiest. You'll have a Thunderbolt cable and some cloning software. Carbon Copy Cloner is an example of cloning software.

    If you know the password, you can unlock it by entering the password when Mac OS X prompts you for it after you connect it to another Mac once it is in Target Disk Mode.

    I don't know what the password was and screen is damaged.
    So would it not work without it?

    It will not work without the password. The password to unlock it is password used to log into the machine with. If you do not have that, you will have to use the recovery key. If you do not have that, the data is lost.
