East Is East
George Khan, proud Pakistani and chip shop owner, rules his family with a rod of iron. He thinks heís raising his seven children to be respectable Pakistanis. But this is Salford in the North of England, in 1971. Tomboy Meenah prefers playing footie to wearing a sari, hippie Saleem pretends to be studying engineering when heís really at art school, heart-throb Tariq has got a reputation as a local Casanova, and 12 year old Sajid hasnít even been circumcised yet. For George, life is an uphill battle to get his family to conform to traditional Pakistani values.

Watch this film!My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
This movie becomes the better the longer you watch it. It eventually heads towards a very convincing final climax and features an absolutely believable portrayal of socio-cultural frictions within a multicultural family. The actors do a fine job. Watch out for young Sajid.My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
Very well directed, very cool film. At times I laughed, at times I cried, and sometimes I did both at the same time.My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
