in a name? A rose by any other name would smell just
as sweet.” These immortal lines penned by Shakespeare
in his Romeo and Juliet apparently have all the relevance

are yet to be resolved as the tedious process of litigation
is in progress. Vishal’s Samar finds itself
in the same boat and suddenly slugging it out over
titles has become the hottest trend.

not at troubled titles but lyrical ones instead, and
the fun trend of naming films after super hit songs.
Only films that have been launched or released in
2012 have been considered for this slideshow.
