A diverse group of British women of South Asian descent go on a day trip to the beach in Blackpool; despite their differences—the older women are more traditional and conservative, the younger women more Westernized—they eventually manage to see common ground. The concept of generation gap is effectively showcased by the movie.
Bhaji is a term used for vegetable stir fry or quick curry. In Mumbai, Pav Bhaji is a popular beach side snack food, consisting of bhaji (a thick potato-based curry) garnished with coriander, chopped onion, and a dash of lemon and lightly toasted pav (a type of bread). The pav is usually buttered on all sides. "Baaji" on the other hand is a term of respect in Urdu, meaning "older sister".
