“What’s 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 in the world even today because human beings still have not given up, quibbling over names. Recently, Tamil cinema has been rocked by all the fuss being made over titles. Vijay’s title issues for Thuppakki 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.

Getting into the spirit of things, let us take a look 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.
