Synopsis
George Khan is the father of seven free-spirited children. He wants the best for them which, in his mind, means raising them in the traditional Pakistani custom. Unfortunately for George, his family lives in a London suburb surrounded by the current cultural phenomenon: 1970's psychedlic hippiedom. The two lifestyles couldn't be more at odds. The Khan kids' relationships with their father George (a.k.a. 'Gengis') becomes a game of dodge-ball, avoiding his restrictions. Life for them is about sneaking in Western pleasures while their father isn't watching. So when George tries to put his foot down, his English wife Ella becomes caught in the middle of a flying circus; she's torn between loyalty towards her husband's beliefs and empathy toward her kids desires to make their own ways in the world. For George Khan, the war for his traditional Pakistani values is about to be waged against London's bellbottoms, discos and free-wheeling lifestyles, and this is where the fun begins.
