  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


Dublin director Damien O'Donnell graduates from award-winning shorts and video promos with a funny, invigorating, highly successful film based on Ayub Khan-Din's play about conflict in a Pakistani family in 1970's Salford. Nicknamed 'Genghis' by his nearest and dearest, George Khan is determined to raise his seven children as respectable married Muslims while his canny Lancastrian wife, concerned for their happiness and personnel fulfillment, slyly encourages the generational rift.
