Storyline

In 1970s England, cultures start to mix and cross with different experiences. Archie is contemplating suicide until he meets Clara, who is fleeing an oppressive Jehovah's Witness mother. Meanwhile, Samad has arrived in England to meet with his old war-friend Archie and to complete his arranged marriage. The two couples have different experiences of multicultural Britain and this differs from their children as the story follows the two generations across the years. Written by Anonymous

Good at the beginning, flopped at the end.
10 December 2002 | by (Southampton, England) – See all my reviews

The White Teeth mini-series went on to show only four parts. I saw each one of them. I really liked the first one but the other three didn't quite keep the magic of the programme. Plus some bad acting was included inside the programme. Also pathetic indian actor Om Puri embarressed himself.
