And suddenly, overnight, the world came to a halt. Two men, two survivors, one kid, and hatred that separates them. A place forgotten by everyone, including the creatures that inhabit the Earth... until now.

I had always felt bad about not been able to see Munna Bhai M.B.B.S in theater at the time it came out because it was the movie I have loved forever. Well I never missed another Vidhu Vinod Chopra's movie. He is unbelievably talented in his own way of character driven films. He shows emotions in a way that has never been seen before but felt by everyone. May be that is the reason, his films are so good.
Honestly I was little worried about the fact that Indian Cinema has its own way and "Broken Horses" might not be able to get to the taste of international audience but boy I was wrong. Not only did he make a wonderful movie for all but he has been successful in bringing two different cultures closer.
Broken Horses is a story of two brother, living away from each other for long time. Its time for younger brother to get married but wait "Buddy" has a gift for him.
The writing is just brilliant. No loop-holes in the script. No dip in the screenplay. Characters are fully developed.Specially "Buddy". Chris Marquette is absolutely mesmerizing in this movie. He plays a character who is still like a child and needs to take care of but in the wrong hands, he has become killer.
Vincent D'Onofrio plays the manipulating villain that uses Buddy to do his dirty work.
Anton Yelchin has played character of younger brother of Buddy. He hasn't been around to take care of his brother which he promised to his dad.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra's movies do make you feel that untouched corner of your heart which you might have forgotten. This movie was successful in doing that once again. He owns this movie and I strongly recommend all to see this. I bet you will all go Banana, after watching this.
