West is West - movie review
West is West continues on from the 1999 hit film East is East which was the story about that family set in 1971 in England. It is now 1976, in Salford, Manchester, England, and remaining members of the Khan family go through their on-going struggle of the elder family members deeply entrenched in traditionally Pakistani values. So it’s the old customs versus the youngsters who were born in Britain and have an upbringing amid the British culture. West is West movie review. Sixty year old George Khan (Om Puri) who is the head of the family is still very much acting as the family dictator – enforcing his beliefs upon his family – much against the trend among the new generation. There are Tariq (Jimi Mistry), Auntie Annie (Leslay Nicole) and Maneer (Emil Marwa) in the family. The protagonist is Sajid (Aqid Khan), the youngest of the children who is now a teenager, 13 year old ....
