Translating movie titles in writing?

Hey, guys. I'm doing some writing about Hindi films for an audience who I can't assume has any prior knowledge of the topic or of the language, and I'm running into a bit of a problem. I'm trying to give a brief translation of the movie titles just in parentheses, but I don't really know what to do when the movie title is just the name of a character. Is there some kind of set protocol for what to do in this case? I'm not sure how much space each movie I'm mentioning is going to get.
