  • Overview
  • Details
In 1970s England, the Khan children are caught between their strictly traditional Pakistani father (Om Puri) and their more laid-back British mother (Linda Bassett). Stranded somewhere between disco nights and arranged marriages, the young Khans just want to be modern Brits, and their quest leads them to cleverly and humorously avoid their father's restrictions at every turn in director Damien O'Donnell's award-winning comedy.
