Valentine’s Week of Sex Poll Post: Vote Now! Pre or Post Coital Scenes, Which Are Better?

I was going to do just straight sex scene sequences versus each other, but then I decided to go broader.

Okay, I have tried to match equal pairs, you go through and pick for all that you can, and then let me know your overall WINNER. And we will see of pre or post coital is better expressed on film.

For myself:

Kabhi Kabhi, Roja, Made in Heaven, Humpty Sharma POST is better

KANK, Paheli, Chalte Chalte, JHMS, PRE is better

So unless I have forgotten something, I am tied! Filmmakers can keep doing both pre and post coital scenes so far as I am concerned

And for overall winner, I think I have to go with Kabhi Kabhi

  1. Pre is almost always better in my estimation, but I haven’t seen all the films. There’s nothing more exciting than the tension and build up to the main event. Especially when it comes to Shah Rukh…I love love love those lead up scenes.

    • So you are pre KANK, Paheli, Chalte Chalte, JHMS? I am okay with that, but surely you are Post for Made in Heaven! The elevator kiss is hot, but it’s all about cleaning each other afterwards.

    • Wait, haven’t you at least seen both Kabhi Kabhi and Made in Heaven? And if you have seen both of those, would you pick PRE or POST for best scene?

      • Oh yeah, that’s right. Good call! Kabhi Kahbie, the later scene, because fake greying Shashi is a FOX and a GOD and for Made in Heaven, the elevator scene, because men being vulnerable is the most beautiful thing after Shashi.

          • Yes, this is why the sad roller skating is so sublime. There are a lot of things I dislike about Junoon (like mistaking Stockholm Syndrome for love), but one thing I do like is Shashi being tongue-tied and made stupid by his perma-boner and Jennifer’s character steamrolling his character all the time. Better than any sex scene, for sure.

            Like

          • I love that Jennifer and Shashi gave her the mother-in-law role because it is the far far juicier part, even if it seems worse on paper.

          • Oh, now I want to write that movie!

            Modern day, super rich playboy type falls in love with a much younger woman, she happily brings him home to meet her mother, the mother is horrified that this much older and more experienced man wants to marry her daughter and vice versa, starts a war of wits with him to try to delay the wedding, eventually daughter realizes she really loves her lifelong best friend the boy next door, and man realizes he loves the mother.

            Sara, Anil, Amrita Singh?

          • I feel like it’s missing an edge without the kidnapping and genocide and the fratercide and the older man not being married already to a wife traumatised by her inability to have children, but as a plot generally, I like it. Amrita and Sara definitely, I feel it needs a different male protagonist to give it more edge. Salman? Aamir? It needs some danger.

          • If Salman was capable of laughing at himself, that would be perfect.

            Forget the happy rom-com set-up, our hero is a big powerful gangster. He sees a beautiful young naach girl and kidnaps her, but then her innocence gets to him and he decides to make her his wife instead of just his mistress. He goes to talk to her mother (a retired Naach girl) to get her blessing. The mother is horrified, because the gangster is so much older, and already married (to a woman who hates him and just married him for money). But she pretends to agree and offers to move in to his house as well to help plan the wedding. She does everything she can to delay the wedding, making crazy demands like a flock of black doves and stuff, and the gangster keeps fulfilling them all. Meanwhile, the naach girl daughter originally was kind of okay with this since the gangster was so kind to her and the house was so luxurious, but then she falls in love with the young man assigned to be her bodyguard.

            In the end, the gangster’s enemies try to kidnap his bride, but the bodyguard protects her so well they end up taking the mother instead. The young people confess their love and go home to the gangster already to face his wrath, but all he cares about is rescuing the mother.

            Tabu and……Sanjay maybe?

          • Or maybe the girl is an average young college student and the mother is a middle-class widowed housewife? So there’s a similar thing of her being this “boring” seeming woman who finds strength and resources within herself for the battle of wits with the powerful gangster. Still Tabu, obviously.

            Like

          • Perfect! I guess she could be kind of an idiot who thinks gangsters are cool because they have swish cars and stuff. Actually, this reminds me a lot of Rosita, but Rosita did it herself instead of the mother.

            Sanjay would be perfect for this.

            Like

          • And we could have that ugly patricide backstory! Her mother hates gangsters and knows they aren’t simply “cool”, because her father was killed when he refused to pay protection for his store in another town. She was so young she doesn’t remember, but Tabu does. We can even have a flashback and it’s not glamorous or cool, it’s messy and violent and scary.

            Of course, Sanjay is a “nice” gangster who wouldn’t do stuff like that, but Tabu doesn’t know that.

          • His wife hates him and is horrible to him, his car breaks down by the college campus and, without knowing who he is, the college girl daughter is super sweet and nice to him? So he is weakened by the idea of someone who is nice to him without wanting anything in return and makes a sudden decision that he is going to bring her home, marry her, and shame his unloving horrible wife. Doesn’t even occur to him that a middle-class college girl (and her mother) may not welcome a marriage to a super powerful gangster type.

            Alternatively, Jim Sarbh? Just, as anything in here? He’s kind of young for Tabu, but boy could he handle the creepy-and-yet-I-kind-of-want-him-to-be-happy part.

            I like that idea of the softer side, takes it closer to Junoon. Why doesn’t anyone let us direct movies?

            Like

          • And we need a scene of the hero breaking down in painful childlike sobs at one point because he is so broken and vulnerable, and then the mother seeing it and being touched to her soul and going to him and comforting him (perhaps singing a lullaby?) and him confessing the darkest saddest parts of his life to her (“my wife never loved me and I thought it was because I was ugly and unworthy of love and bad at sex”) and then her comforting him with sex.

            I don’t know how we get there exactly, but I want it.

He is still shaken but tries to be strong and asks her what she needs, and she says she needs to give him a hug. He hugs her briefly, but then she squeezes tight and won’t let go, and slowly his face melts and he starts to sob and talk about how he just wants to be loved.

  2. My mom LOVED Shashi. Absolutely her fave leading man, and she had many greats to choose from. She’s approximately born around same time.

  3. I thought my comment would contribute more, but I’ve only seen two movies on this list, and I’m in agreement with you on both. JHMS, pre trumps post by a long shot, and same with HSKD except post is so much better.

    • HSKD and Kabhi Kabhi might be tied for all time best post-coital scenes. Happy making to watch, perfectly in character, and also vitally necessary to the plot.
