THE CURIOUS CASE OF ACRONYMS

By Prathap

None of us in this generation will ever have forget the acronym DDLJ, India's most famous candy floss romance, even if we are to forget something nostalgic as our first date. DDLJ also ushered in a trend of lengthy names that are shortened to an acronym for easier usage. Here are some Tamil movies that became known by their acronyms, rather than their lengthy names.

SMS - The comedy Siva Manasula Sakthi became synonymous with text messaging because of its acronym.

VTV - Gautham Menon's Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya might be a poetic title but it's known mostly by its acronym.

BEB - Boss Engira Baskaran, Rajesh's latest blockbuster, was called BEB, as if reminding us that Nayan is part of it.

OKOK - You could easily mistake this title, derived from Oru Kal Oru Kannadi, for a casual expression that everything is perfect.

NEP - Gautham repeats his habit of naming convention with his Neethane En Ponvasantham, shortened as NEP.
