Sitcom written by and starring Sanjeev Kohli and Donald Mcleary, set in a
Scots-Asian corner shop near Glasgow.
Join the staff of Fags, Mags and Bags in their tireless quest to bring
nice-price custard creams and cans of coke with Arabic writing on them to an
ungrateful nation. Ramesh Mahju has built it up over the course of over 30
years and is a firmly entrenched, friendly presence in the local area.
Ramesh loves the art of the 'shop'. However; he does apply the 'low return'
rules of the shop to all other aspects of his life. Ramesh is ably assisted by
his shop sidekick Dave, a forty-something underachiever who shares Ramesh's
love of the art of shopkeeping, even if he is treated like a slave.
Then there are Ramesh's sons Sanjay and Alok, both surly and not
particularly keen on the old school approach to shopkeeping, but natural
successors to the business. Ramesh is keen to pass all his worldly wisdom onto
them - whether they like it or not!
