Paap Ko Jalaakar Raakh Kar Doonga (1988)

K.R. Reddy's film's title may suggest setting all sins on fire, but it is a metaphor for the film's Honest Indian Man plotline.

Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana (2012)

The Sameer Sharma romantic comedy's title spells out the film's basic plot: a love story around a chicken recipe.

Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola (2013)

The film's very filmy original title translated to English such that it made logical sense for international audiences, killing two birds with one stone!
