West is West: Movie Review

It’s been 11 years since ‘East is East’ won hearts worldwide. ‘West is West’ however might just be a touch of nostalgia for fans of the original. As for the rest, it comes off as superficial and a tad bit offensive. There is a nagging feeling throughout, that this film is not for you; it’s for the NRI audience. But somehow, it still manages to become a decent watch thanks to the performances and light hearted treatment.

The family of Pakistani Brit, George Khan (Om Puri) may have reduced in size with most of his sons having walked out of house, but his troubles haven’t ended. His youngest son Sajid (Aqib Khan), plagued by bullies in school is growing unruly and rebellious. In order to tame him, George takes him to Pakistan to spend time with his first wife (Ila Arun) and the family he abandoned twenty years ago. But getting back isn’t as easy as it seems, especially when his English wife (Linda Bassett) chooses to join him.
The humor although not as refreshing as one would expect, manages some laughs. The treatment is light hearted, which isn’t such a bad thing. No one likes melodrama these days. Performance wise, Om Puri is at his delightful best while Aqib Khan steals the show as Sajid. That coupled with melodious music makes it watchable.
