The latest trend in the movies seems to be naming the film after its protagonist.

So we've had Boss, Shahid, Krrish 3, Rajjo, Ram-Leela... the list goes on.

And what exactly is the list? Read on:

Rajjo

Kangna Ranaut turns into a nautch girl named Rajjo for this realistic tale, set in the by-lanes of a small town of India.

Rajjo is pitched as a calling card for Kangna, who could well do with an author backed role for herself.

Ranveer Singh is Ram.

Deepika Padukone is Leela.

And together, they come together for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's violent love story called Ram-Leela.

A contemporary take of Romeo & Juliet, this jodi finds it's base in Gujarat and should find an easy connect with the audience, courtesy their simple names.

Ram Gopal Varma's Satya was one of his best films, made on the underworld.

Now, 15 years later, he's back with a sequel.

The name of the protagonist remains the same, Satya, and one wonders if there will be a character like Bhiku Mhatre in the film.

It started out being Rambo Rajkumar.

Then objections were raised from those who hold copyright of the name Rambo, and that was dropped.

Director Prabhu Dheva changed the name of the film to R...Rajkumar and promises to unveil the mystery behind the 'R' when the film releases.

Arshad Warsi promises a laugh riot with Joe B Carvalho, a film where he apparently plays the title role of a detective.

Designed to sound like Jo Bhi Karvalo, the film may be the second successive take for Arshad, where his character's name finds itself in the title.

Amitabh Bachchan had a lot of fun playing the unkempt ghost Bhootnath.

Now, five years after the first film, comes the sequel, Bhoothnath Returns, promising its own share of laughs.

Incidentally, the last time his character's name was found in a film's title was in Sarkar Raj (2008).

Is Ranbir Kapoor playing the title role here, or will it be Arjun Rampal?

It is a wait and watch situation, since the makers are totally tight lipped on the film.

All that is fine, as long as there are no unpleasant surprises like in Besharam.
