Several top directors are rooting for legendary director-producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra's maiden Hollywood film 'Broken Horses'.
It holds the feat of being the Hollywood film that has been written, directed and produced by an Indian. Earlier, it wowed the likes of legendary Hollywood directors, James Cameron and Alfonso Cuaron, then Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan came forward to support the film and release the trailer and now, it has overwhelmed some of the best directors of our country. Here's what they have to say about the film.
"Broken Horses is an artistic triumph. Beautifully written, acted and imaged, this film wraps slowly around you like a king snake and squeezes," says James Cameron. "Broken Horses overwhelmed me. The greatness of Vidhu Vinod Chopra's films comes from the act that all his characters are driven by love," says Alfonso Cuaron.

Vikramaditya Motwane says, “Vidhu Vinod Chopra has been a landmark director, he is some whose films we have watched growing up with Parinda and Khamosh and lot of amazing films he has made. As a Bollywood person I am very excited.
Sudhir Mishra says, “It’s a gem of a film brilliantly shot. It is loosely connected with Vinod’s Parinda but it’s a new film altogether and it’s much better film than Parinda. All the best to Vinod and I hope its succeeds a lot all over the world.”
Sriram Raghavan says, “He is a senior from my institute and I am big fan of Vinod’s work. He is back to action after a while, action and drama. I have always loved his work and seen his classic film Parinda and Khamosh so many times.”
