In an interview to LA Times, Vidhu Vinod Chopra has revealed the plot of his new film Broken Horses. Its his first Hollywood film which he has been threatening to make for quite sometime. To quote from the feature…..

His English-language directorial debut about two brothers, one a violinist in New York, the other a hired gun, set against the drug war on the U.S.-Mexico border.

As Chopra points out, “there is nothing Indian about the movie except the director. The heart of the movie is the relationship between these two brothers, but within that is a story about how we destroy what we love. It’s about the choices we make in life.”

This sounds exactly like Vishal Bhardwaj’s Kaminey! Ok, not exactly but lot of similarities. Two brothers (Ok, not twins), there is gun, there is violin (not guitar), drug and war too! How we destroy what we love ? Its about the choices we make in life ? We might be reading too much between the lines and the words but doesnt it all sound like Guddu & Charlie’s world.

Ofourse everything else will be different. But we could not resist connecting the dots. Its written by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Abhijaat Joshi and Jason Richman is the script consultant ( Swing Vote, Bangkok Dangerous). To give you the mood & feel of the film, VVC has already cut a trailer from the recce footage.

This one is fightclub exclusive. And by exclusive, we mean it, unlike others.

vidhu vinod chopraThis is one insane man whom we absolutely adore. Because this man loves and worships cinema. Here goes our xclusive dope….Vidhu Vinod Chopra is busy developing a new script tentatively titled Pachasvi Saalgirah (50th Anniversary). As the name suggests, its about an old couple who are soon going to celebrate their 50th marriage anniversary (isnt that rare these days). And so whats the plan ? The old man wants to spend the anniversary night in a five star hotel, his long cherished dream. Then ? Well, the script is still being developed. So all you curious folks have to wait some more. We will get you more when it happens.

Also, Munnabhai Chale Amreeka and Ferarri Ki Sawari’s story sessions are very much on. But looks like Talisman may not happen soon. The priority is Broken Horses after Three Idiots which is almost done.

Dope on Raj Kumar Hirani’s Three Idiots – Aamir Khan is NOT playing a college student in the film. No need to worry about his looks and get up any more. He plays a mysterious character who lands up in a college to spread some gud old philosophy about education system..whats right and whats not!
