Definition

A system of identification of a movie under production by not-so-well-known production houses in India.This is part of the long time habit of the film industry in India of temporarily naming a film yet not given a final title by names like Production no two , three, etc. until the movie is completely complete and ready to be released.
This generally happens due to utter uncertainties like strategic(marketing), strategic(financial-the financiers having a say in everything including the name, cast, banner itself, story, script, exhibitors, etc. director included), strategic(operational-the cast and ability of the producer to hold on to it and complete the movie against all odds).

One would be utterly foolish to even try to list uncertainties.

The other meaning of the phrase is the order in which children are produced by parents, the eldest being the production number one.

Usage

Kamal Shah: What sir, you said you will get the call sheet of Vidya madam, and you are yet to give her the story? How can I hope that you will even begin production number two?
Director Das: Don't worry saar, I will handle Vidya madam, in six months, but, please wait until then, she herself is contending with her own production number one.

They can think beyond the current years crop and are willing to accept new ideas and cultivate new crops...and so "progressive".

Usage

Mohan: What's the problem man? Just catch a few progressive farmers and sell them the idea.

In the west as the english pictures would have us believe, heroes propose to the heroine in full romantic setting and ask the girl to marry him.
Here, we believe in a slightly different concept. When you propose, you don't ask her to marry you, you simply say 'i love you' and then you become boyfriend girlfriend.

Usage

Abhilasha - Guess what! Tenzing proposed to me in the last period!
Mayawati - Aicchhhhh!!!!!!!!
Abhilasha - No ya!
