East is East / West is West - 2 Film Collection (DVD)
Feel-good comedy starring Om Puri, Linda Bassett and Jimi Mistry about what happens when two cultures clash within one family… Critically acclaimed modern British film classic.
Set in early 1970s Salford, the multi-award-winning film centres on George Khan (Om Puri), the architect of his family's dilemma. The Moslem chip shop owner married Ella (Linda Bassett), an English woman, and fathered seven children ranging from the devout Maneer to the wayward Tariq (Jimi Mistry). But the family swerves precariously between Bowie and the dowry until George decides to take charge. Disowning a son who refuses an arranged marriage, he decides that Tariq and his brother Abdul will marry, sight unseen, the twin daughters of a Bradford businessman. Named "Best Picture of the Year" by the London Film Critics' Choice.
West Is West is the sequel, which takes the family to Pakistan to meet the relatives – chaos ensues as secrets are revealed…
