Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

East Is East is the often hilarious and sometimes painful story of what happens when two cultures collide within one family.

This is Salford in the 1970s and in the Khan’s cramped terrace house with its scant indoor plumbing, anarchy erupts on a daily basis. When the Khan kids begin to oppose their father’s petty tyrannies, his wife Ella (Linda Bassett) is forced to make a choice between her love for her husband and the right of her children to make their own way in the world. West Is West takes the Khan family on a journey from Salford, England, to rural Pakistan. Sajid, the youngest Khan has been misbehaving so his father decides to pack him off to Mrs Khan No 1 and family in the Punjab, the wife and daughters he had abandoned 30 years earlier. Resolved to teach Sajid a lesson, the tables are turned on George as he realises that it is he himself who has much to learn.
