A Punjabi melodrama focusing on Surjit Singh who emigrates to Canada for better prospects leaving behind his wife and daughter.

But to gain Canadian citizenship he marries for a second time breaking all connections with his family back in Punjab.

Concealing this dark secret from his doctor son Varyam (Harbhajan), he reveals all on his death bed making his son promise to fulfill his last wish - for Varyam to take his ashes back to Punjab where his first wife is to perform his last rites.

Upon his arrival in Punjab, Varyam gets familiar with its colourful culture and religious rituals, building a strong relationship with his stepfamily who are unaware of his visit.

But all hell breaks loose when his true identity and his purpose comes to the fore with devastating consequences.

In the wake of recent urban themed releases, director Manmohan Singh's family orientated film with Punjabi values comes as a refreshing change on to the big screen.

Singer turned actor, Harbhajan Mann does full justice to his role as a son prepared to forsake all to fulfill his dying father's wish by effectively demonstrating the vulnerability and determination of Varyam.

Japji Khaira is the surprise package giving a realistic performance as the local village belle who falls for Varyam's charms.

On the whole, Mitti Wajaan Mardi is a wholesome family entertainer steeped highly in Punjabi cultural values and tear-jerking moments. Worth a watch.
