‘ Parinda was the starting point for Broken Horses’

press club of india, Indian Tehalka News

For those familiar with Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s iconic Parinda (1989), his Hollywood debut, Broken Horseswould have rang quite a few bells. There were the brothers and the horrific story behind the gang lord’s fear of fire.

The action has shifted from Mumbai to the U.S.-Mexico border and Anna Seth has been replaced by Vincent D’Onofrio. The film will be released on April 10.

“ Parinda was the starting point for Broken Horses ,” said Chopra at a press conference following the screening of the film.

The evolution included the elder brother Buddy (Jackie Shroff’s character in Parinda ) being simple minded.

“The character was not working. However, once we introduced the idea of him being slow, it worked.”

Chopra said, “This is more than a film. It is a dream. I don’t like to be in my comfort zone. After 3 Idiots , anyone else would have made 4 Idiots. I like to challenge myself. It was also to prove a point that there is more to Bollywood than song, dance and melodrama. I grew up in a small town and learnt English when I was 16. If I could make a film in Hollywood, for the young people of Bengaluru and other Indian cities, the world is their playground.”

Bengaluru is the first Indian city to have a screening of the film.

Broken Horses has got glowing words of praise from Hollywood directors; James Cameron ( Avatar ) called it an “artistic triumph”.

Chopra says, “I felt like I was out of film school! I am 62 and feel 40 and this film makes me feel 25.”
