5. No Smoking (2007)
“Ranvir Shorey’s character is called Abbas Tyerwalla. Now you might have heard this name somewhere, I was curious too. So when I looked up, I read Anurag Kashyap mentioned somewhere that the real life, Abbas Tyerwalla (a fellow songwriter) who also wrote lyrics for his film Paanch had given himself up to big production houses. So as per him, Ranvir’s character was aptly named because he also kind of accepts defeat from the powerful society.” – Algaav_wadi


6. 7 Khoon Maaf (2011)
“Ruskin Bond has a little cameo in the film. He has originally written the story so I was happy to see a nice little homage.” – Algaav_wadi


7. Dev.D (2009)
“Dev.D is full of those. I feel, in a way, it celebrates the power of women. Especially in the second half, Abhay’s room is filled with goddess’ posters. He wears earphones whenever he is around Mahie. He doesn’t even look at her straight in the eye. In a way suggesting that he cannot stand to face her power. Other posters on the walls also are really interesting.” – NationalAlbatross

“The name of the movie, Golmaal, is made up of Gopal, Laxman, Madhav, and Lucky – the alphabet of their names.” – AM2PM_

Chatur shows how successful he is by showing a picture in which his wife and his house can be seen. The girl shown in the picture is from Chatur’s batch. The girl behind Rancho is Chatur’s wife (at least I think so).” – Aditya Sahu
