A Little Big War...over love

Screen's cover story for the weekend explores the ek chhoti si love story controversy in detail. They also have an update on the issue.

On a lighter note, Taran Adarsh's list of newly registered movie titles continues to amuse:

Haste Khelte Ho Gaya..!


Goli The Bullet {just in case you were wondering what the last title meant}

Graduate Hall


Chicken Curry


Chicken And Rice

In recent times, there has been a growing tendency to name films with English translations tagged along as suffixes: Shakti - The Power, Goli - The Bullet, Sikkay - The Coins ... and the like. We continue, however, to endure indigestibly long titles that seem to appeal to filmmakers who wish to emulate the (questionable) success of trailblazers of the genre like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge and the complete Karan Johar canon {wanna know what his next film will be titled? check this out}.
