Numbers return as titles for Films
Enkayaar, Bollywood Trade News Network
When EK releases tomorrow apart from the fact that it would mark the return of Bobby Deol to the silver screen in the lead role after a friendly appearance in FASHION, it would also be a film that has been christened after the number system of the Hindi calendar. As a matter of fact naming the film after he numbers has been a phenomenon which is not a regular occurrence in Hindi films as it is in Hollywood. May be, EK could help Bobby Deol reignite his quest to be in the run for the top slot. It would indeed be an interesting counterpoise to run through the films which had their titles based on numbers.
The difference of the title of EK is also significant in the sense that it is not prefixed or suffixed with any other title, which has been the case with other films.
Among the first films where the number 420, as it is used in the Indian context as an individual who does not have any gumption to cheat, was used underlined the importance of this number in everyday life in India.
