Purab Aur Paschim (East & West) is a 1970 Hindi film produced and directed by Manoj Kumar, who starred in the lead role opposite Saira Banu. The other cast of the film included Ashok Kumar, Pran and Prem Chopra. The music of the film was composed by Kalyanji Anandji.
This was the second film by Manoj Kumar where he appeared as a character named “Bharat” or “India” (the first being Upkar) and his fourth film on patriotism (Shaheed, Roti Kapda Aur Makaan and Kranti). The name stuck on and Manoj Kumar is routinely referred to as “Bharat Kumar” till today.
Shot in London during the height of the hippie movement of the 1960s, Purab Aur Paschim captured the free spirited lifestyle of the British. The lead actress of the film, Saira Banu is cast as an Indian woman who has been westernized completely by living in the UK. She appears on screen smoking, drinking and wearing skimpy outfits, leading a life contrary to Indian culture and traditional values.
Purab Aur Paschim is said to have inspired the 2007 film Namastey London starring Akshay Kumar & Katrina Kaif. The remake pays tribute to the original through a dialog in the film, where Akshay Kumar tells Katrina Kaif that if she wants to learn more about India, she should see Purab Aur Paschim.
In the film, Manoj Kumar plays the son of a freedom fighter who goes to London for higher studies where he meets Saira Banu and a love story unfolds. Purab Aur Paschim captures the dramatic differences between cultures of the East and West and explores the idea of intercultural relationships.
