Sajid, the youngest Khan has been misbehaving so his father decides to pack him off to Mrs Khan No 1 and family in the Punjab, the wife and daughters he had abandoned 30 years earlier.

This is my review from LF:

West is West is the much awaited sequal to the magnificent East is East. It focuses on the youngest of the Khan family Sajid. Set a few years on from the original film, Aqib Khan slides perfectly into the role of Sajid, played brilliant by Jordan Routledge in the first film.
It is now 1976 and Sajid is struggling in school and life. Following a brief cameo by Jimi Mistry his father decides to take Sajid to Pakistan to meet up with his family. There we see Manir who has been in Pakistan for some time trying to find a wife. We are also introducted to Mrs Khan number one and her story takes a slice of the film.

But it is Sajid who is the main man and it is he who steals the film along with the surprising comedy of his new friend Zaid played by Raj Bhansali. Sajid sets out to find Manir a wife and discovers himself along the way.

Lesley Nicol and Linda Bassett resurrect their roles as Annie and the mother respectively and equally add some light comic moments. For anyone expecting to see the brilliant Archie Panjabi you will be disappointed in fact you will be generally disappointed with the film. Not that this film is bad, its just that East is East was truly magnificent so there was little chance that it could be surpassed. But for me it was set in a brilliant part of the world where brilliant people reside so I am biased. I would see it again at the cinema and I will be buying it on DVD. I would recommend that anybody who saw the first film experience this film with an open mind. Now we know the Khan family sit back and enjoy their story and allow it to take you to a different place. The film is not East is East I will grant you that. And yes. it is filled with cliches from the first magnificent film.

West is West is a witty and well-thought out follow up to East to East. It journeys to 1970's, Manchester. Britain experienced the first wave of Pakistani immigrants from the fifties to the seventies. The dysfunctional Khan's family continue to experience problems. In East to East, the focus is about the family quest for survivial and acceptance within the local community against the increasing prejudice. West to West continues to builds on the theme, but it closely ties in with heritage and family roots.Much of the scenes is in the sub-continent. It is a cleverly written screenplay, supported with quality acting and directing.

It takes a deep look at the social dynamics within the family and the problems confronted by being a mixed race family. The opening sequences nicely set the tone of the film, as we are introduced to the youngest member of the family, Sajid. We start to gain a solid understanding of the character, as he is a victim of bullying at school and the father exerts so much pressure to the sons of accepting Pakistani traditions within the family unit.

George never wants to lose touch of his beloved Pakistani roots and hopes the sons appreciate his viewpoints.. Sajid truants regular from school, due to name calling and needs to be escorted by the father. He is reluctant to accept his cultural idenitity and heritage.

The proud father decides to take the troubled son on an educational journey to the family roots. It is understandably a culture shock for Sajid as he struggles to adapt to the country. The way of life is so different. Sajid gradually starts to settle in the country and develops a special friendship with a local lad. Can this journey change the attitude?

We learn a great deal about George's background and a hidden family secret.

Enjoyed the troublesome "East is East". And this is a very good followup. Nice humor, serious, good actors - the life, emotions, complications and insights. Just a great movie! Thanks.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Scaroth, Last of the Jagaroth on 4 Feb. 2014
Format: DVD
Om Puri returns as the troubled patriarch of the mixed-race Khan family five years on from the events depicted in East is East, with the focus now firmly on a teenage Sajid (now minus the Parka) who is the victim of racial bullying and who is becoming increasingly disillusioned with his family’s heritage. After a confrontation with his father, the latter decides to take his son back to Pakistan to get in touch with his roots, and despite Mrs Khan’s disapproval, the pair set off.
Less amusing than its predecessor, the film nonetheless has flashes of original humour, and is arguably more substantial overall than East is East. Most of the action takes place in Pakistan, with Sajid’s attempts to help his older brother Maneer find a wife and his friendship with local boy Zaid helping him come to terms with a culture he previously had little knowledge of. Spiritual teacher Pir Naseem also forges a bond with Sajid (to George’s chagrin initially), and by the end of the film relationships have been strengthened, new alliances made, and George finally begins to appreciate the wife that he has taken for granted for so many years.

This film is very funny and as good as East to East. Recommend this film for all ages. There is a hidden message in the film which is very subtle around mixed marriages and relationships very sensitively done. Highly recommend this film.
