Product Description

Sitcom following the trials and tribulations of self-appointed Muslim community leader Mr Khan and his long suffering family. Khan is a larger-than-life character, a small man with big dreams and strident opinions. Like many of us he’s struggling to make ends meet – but he’s proud of his thriftiness – witness his 1979 suit and ancient yellow Mercedes. Things would be so much easier if everyone just listened to him and followed his lead, but his obsessively house-proud wife and two feisty daughters have other ideas. Starring Adil Ray, Shobu Kapoor, Felix Dexter, Kris Marshall, Maya Sondhi, Bhavna Limbachia and Abdullah Afzal.

Hilarious comedy - watched the whole series and looking forward for series 2.

I watched the series from the beginning and thought it was really funny and the actors are fab, it is comedy after all and I don't think the intention is taking the mick out of religion. I loved the actors and the style of the way they played the roles.

Well Done Adil Ray! I'm a huge fan after seeing 'Citizen Khan'

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant observational humour 26 Feb 2013
By R Mills
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Citizen Khan is written in the same vein as other classic humour such as "Fawlty Towers" and "The High Life" in that it observes a particular section of British life. Poking fun at ourselves is a British trait, and one that deservedly embraces all sectors of our multi-ethnic community.

The "Birds and the Bees" scene where Mr Khan attempts unsuccessfully to teach his daughter the facts of life is particularly well observed and deserves to become a classic clip.

I very much look forward to a second series.

4.0 out of 5 stars EXTREMELY FUNNY 24 Feb 2013
By Carolw
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having seen this series on the television, I was pleased to be able to get it on DVD and watch it again as there are so many laughs in it that you can miss the first time round. It is very cleverly written and extremely well cast. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and it is a series that can be watched and enjoyed over and over again.

excellent dvd, very funny, caught this on bbc but missed a few episodes and decided to find it on amazon, comedy series about an asian family, very well written with brilliant acting, simple true to life adaptation of modern asian life (I think!?), worth buying and watching, quick delivery.

Forget the half-witted pantomime of Mrs Brown's Boys, this is THE funniest sitcom around at the moment. Adil Ray is brilliant as Mr Khan. May it continue.
