Vidhu Vinod Chopra made his Hollywood directorial debut with ‘Broken Horses’ this year. The makers have released the trailer of the movie, which features Thomas Jane, Vincent D’Onofrio and Anton Yelchin in lead roles.
‘Broken Horses’, the title means wild horses that are tamed for farming purposes & ranching purposes. Set near the American-Mexican border, it is the story of two brothers – one a violinist, and the other a mercenary. It deals with drug related crime on the Mexican border.
Director James Cameron has praised the movie said, “Broken Horses is an artistic triumph. Beautifully written, acted, imaged, this film wraps slowly around you like a king snake and squeezes.”
The movie has been written by Chopra and Abhijaat Joshi. It will hit the screens on April 10.
At the trailer launch of the movie, the filmmaker said that making this film to him, was a “dream come true”. Recounting his education in a vernacular school in Jammu and Kashmir as a child, he also humorously reiterated that he and Joshi, were both challenged in writing in English. Their sounding board, the author Vikram Chandra kept sending their script back saying ‘rubbish’ and marking all pages on red. So that this film even took place and got made, was on his part, madness and a sign of times to the young lot of filmmakers – that nothing is impossible if you set your heart to it.
