A Romeo and Juliet story of star-crossed lovers is infused with urgency by the fact that it is based not on Shakespeare’s play, but on a real-life incident that took place just 30 years ago. Indian Canadian Jassi (Pavia Sidhu) aged 19, visiting family in the Punjab, falls in love with Mithu, an illiterate rickshaw driver. Their romance is touchingly chaste but Jassi’s determination to bring her unsuitable love to Canada appals her mother; if she had known she could do this, she says, she would have strangled Jassi at birth. Restrained in its delivery and surprisingly very funny, especially dealing with Indian bureaucracy, Dear Jassi nevertheless delivers a culminating gut punch that is both heartfelt and a dramatic coup.
