Sound track is loud and irritating. Relationships between characters are not credible or compelling. Superficial cliché storyline with the idiot British Police and naive immigrant family.

how is it that British writers write stuff like this that they clearly think is a cautionary tale about religious extremism, but are actually just about how godawful cruel and incompetent even the imaginary version of the British government and intelligence is towards anyone who isn't in the House of Lords. Good cast, good acting.

Brilliant and necessary viewing. Such inside into an ordinary family destroyed by the few but powerful religious fanaticism. So great to see a film about a British Pakistani family. Archie Punjabi is one of the finest actresses.
