East is East

Director:Damien O'Donnell

Writers:Ayub Khan-Din (play and screenplay)

Stars:Om Puri, Linda Bassett and Jordan Routledge

East Is East is a 1999 British comedy-drama film, written by Ayub Khan-Din and directed by Damien O'Donnell. It is set in a British household of mixed-ethnicity, with a British Pakistani father and an English mother in Salford, Lancashire, in 1971. Fish-and-chip shop owner George Khan (played by Om Puri), the father, expects his family to follow his strict Pakistani ways, but his children who were born and grow up in Britain increasingly see themselves as British and reject their father's rules on dress, food, religion, and living in general, leading to a rise in tensions and conflicts in the family.

East Is East is based on the play of the same name by Ayub Khan-Din, which opened at the Royal Court Theatre in 1997.

West is West

Director: Andy DeEmmony

Writer: Ayub Khan-Din (screenplay)

Stars:Aqib Khan, Om Puri and Linda Bassett

An immigrant father decides to take his truant son back to the old country. Salford, North of England, 1975. The now much diminished, but still claustrophobic and dysfunctional, Khan family continues to struggle for survival. Sajid, the youngest Khan, the runt of the litter, is deep in pubescent crisis under heavy assault both from his father's tyrannical insistence on Pakistani tradition, and from the fierce bullies in the schoolyard. So, in a last, desperate attempt to 'sort him out', his father decides to pack him off to Mrs Khan No 1 and family in the Punjab, the wife and daughters he had abandoned 35 years earlier. It is not long before Ella Khan (Mrs Khan No2) with a small entourage from Salford, England, swiftly follows to sort out the mess, past and present.
