Vidhu Vinod Chopra : Trekking from Bollywood to Hollywood

 Vidhu Vinod Chopra is one of the biggest producers in Bollywood. But that’s not all. He has also helmed films that have been widely appreciated by the critics. An Encounter with Faces, his 1978 documentary about the plight of destitute children, made it to the Oscars. Vidhu made his Bollywood directorial debut with Khamosh (1985) and followed it up with a slew of blockbusters like Parinda (1989), 1942: A Love Story (1993), and Mission Kashmir (2000). His collaborations with Rajkumar Hirani; including the Munna Bhai series, 3 Idiots and PK have been some of the biggest hits that Indian cinema has ever seen. Movies under his banner have also provided a platform to unexplored talent such as Boman Irani and Ali Fazal. In fact, he is one of the very few producers in Bollywood who is known to venture into uncharted territory, effectively juggling out-and-out commercial movies with considerable slices of offbeat, parallel cinema.

Recently, Vidhu has ventured into direction after a gap of almost 8 years with an American film, Broken Horses. The movie, starring Maria Valverde, Thomas Jane, Anton Yelchin, Vincent D’Onofrio and Sean Patrick Flanery, is an adaptation of the 1989 film Parinda. Set in a ‘twilight zone’, Broken Horses is the tale of two brothers and their relationship. It is set against the the drug war on the American-Mexican border. Directors like James Cameron and Alfonso Cuaron have spoken highly of the film. Cameron says, “Broken Horses is an artistic triumph. Beautifully written, acted and imaged, the film wraps slowly around you like a king snake and squeezes.”

Broken Horses, co-produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Reliance Entertainment, releases on April 10, 2015.
