A is a 1958 novel written by B with the usual place of setting as B’s other works. A was made into a movie of the same name in 1965, initially being considered to be an Indo-American co-production but then being separately made in the two languages. The english version was primarily made by Tad Danielewski and C, who we do not associate with film making generally, having won the most prestigious and highest distinction in the field C is known for in 1960. D is also one among the winners whose death in 1961 shocked everyone leaving behind an unparalleled legacy in D’s works. E considered to be one among these best works was made into a film of the same name in 1957 starring Rock Hudson & Jennifer Jones. It was the last movie to be produced by F and was critically panned. The only silver lining was the surprising Oscar nod to G in the Best Supporting Actor category. G notably known as an Italian director and a leading figure in the neorealism movement having won many Oscars in the Foreign Film category during his time gave us H. It follows a poor old man and his dog in Rome desperately seeking for a room as he is being evicted.

Being a favourite of many, H has been cited as I’s favourite movie. Described by Woody Allen as "probably the greatest film artist, all things considered, since the invention of the motion picture camera," I is recognized as one of the most accomplished and influential film directors of all time, I’s most definitive film J is again another classic which has been parodied numerous times over the years. One such parody seen in the 2009 American comedy drama K shows one of the iconic scenes of J with K’s main lead and cupid. Having indie rock, alternative rock and folk being the main genres involved in the sound track of K, L is mentioned as the female lead’s favourite band in K and has obviously been included in the soundtrack. L grew out of Manchester, England in 1982 and critics have called them the most important alternative rock band to emerge from the British scene of the 1980s. The sister of the leading lady of K stars in M produced by Fox Network, the eighth season of which is running currently. N was one of the fourth drama series to be picked up by Fox starring Calista Flockhart in the title role of a young lawyer working in the fictional Boston law firm Cage and Fish.

The show's ratings began to decline in the third season, but stabilized in the fourth season after O joined the regular cast. However, O’s character was written out after the end of the season due to the actor's troubles with drug addiction. Having dabbled in music to a small extent, O’s most commercially successful recording venture to date (combining sales and radio airplay) has been his remake of the 1973 P Christmas song "River" A Canadian musician, P’s 1969 song Q commemorated Q and became a major hit for R. The name R was accordingly altered when S would leave and/or join them. T formed in 1963 was a springboard for S’s career with its biggest hit being U. U quickly became a protest song and while it has come to symbolize worldwide turbulence and confrontational feelings arising from events during the 1960s (particularly the Vietnam War), one of the members of T recounts writing the song in reaction to escalating unrest between law enforcement and young club-goers on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles County, California.

T was used as the opening song for the 2005 film which was officially endorsed by Amnesty International. This film is pretty important to V as the soundtrack of the film W, for which V composed music, was included as background scores for one of the scenes.

W directed by X is the second in X's trilogy of films, that depict human relationships against a background of Indian politics, the other two being Y and Z.
