Bollywood in bed, Pillow talk: Director's choice

You must have noticed that different Bollywood directors approach their films with a mindset spawn from their upbringing, background, interest on certain subjects and their thoughts in particular on a certain aspect of the society. So if a Ram Gopal Verma film talks about ghosts and crime, Sooraj Barjatya talks about keeping the family happy, hale and hearty. If an Abbas Mustan believes in a murderous twist to every love story, a Madhur Bhandarkar film reflects middle-class aspirations in a hypocritical society.

Here are some pictures from the movie Raaz-The Mystery Continues, a Mohit Suri film where the couple Nandita(Kangana Ranaut) and Yash(Adhyayan Suman) talk about the new house that they have just bought.The post-coitus scene or the scene where the couple have a 'heart to heart' pillow talk after a steamy romp session is usually a focal point in most films, a place where the characters talk about the course of action, they should take with their lives. Usually, the plot starts to kick in the post-coitus scene. Sample a scene from Parinda where the couple talk about their future after making love, before they are gunned down by a frenzied Nana Patekar. Even in Raaz-The Mystery Continues, Kangana tells Adhyayan about the new house that they've just shifted into. The very house becomes an abode of haunted spirit who is out to torture her.

Here is a tongue in cheek look at what an onscreen couple would talk to each other, post coitus pillow talk in films made by various directors.

Mahesh Bhatt film
Man: Sonia, I remember how as a child, I saw my dad leaving my poor mom for another $lut. I wouldn't let the same happen to our kids

Sooraj Barjatya film:

Abbas Mustan movie:
Man: Save your moves for tomorrow darling, Sophia. you have to seduce my bro and throw him down from the roof-top of this building.
