S Mohindar When S. Mohindar got National Award for Punjabi Film 'Nanak Naam Jahaaz Hai' (1970) with songs by Asha Bhosle, Manna Dey and Mohammad Rafi, he got instant fame all of a sudden. He had not done many films but very selective few Hindi films are there to his name with same excellent music. His first ever nation wide hit was 'Gujre Huye Zamaane Aate Nahi Dobaara..' sung by Lata Mangeshkar and enacted by Madhubala. It is a memorable work of all the three associated with it,i.e., Lata Mangeshkar, Madhubala and Mohindar himself.

Mohindar Singh was born in Silanwala, Punjab. He was very fond of playing flute since his childhood. He got professional training in music from Lakshman Das and Bade Ghulam Ali Khan Saheb. Mohindar became a singer at Lahore radio station, but after partition of India he settled down in Bombay. He got his first chance to work as a music director in Arun Kumar's Sehra in 1948, which has songs by Arun Kumar, Nirmala Devi and Mohindar himself. He sang 'Aei Dil Udaa Ke Le Chal..' in Sehra. He sang a duet in Jeewan Sathi 'O Dear My Dear..' with Premlata in 1949.

Commercially, his films Chambe Di Kali (Punajbi) and Shaadi Ki Raat (both 1950) are important. Lata sang her first song for Mohindar in Shaadi Ki Raat 'Ham Dil Ki Kahani Kya Kehte..' which became very popular. Same year (1950) his film Neeli also got released which had seven out of nine songs sung by Suraiyya. His other noticeable films include Naata (1952) in which a chorus with Lata, Rafi, Balbir and Shamshad (Dhadka Reh Reh Ke Dil Baawra..') was very popular in those days. Caarwan (1956) had also few good songs like 'Aa Ja Tujhe Mohabbat Aawaz De Rahi Hai..' by Talat Mehmood and 'Kis Raah Ka Raahi Hai Too..' by Lata and G. M. Durrani. Next year (1957) Shirin Farhad was released which had the hit song by Lata 'Gujra Hua Zamaana Aata Nahin Dobara..'. It had few more popular songs sung by Talat Mehmood, Hemant Kumar and Asha Bhosle.

Unfortunately, Mohindar never got the chance to work under any renowned producer but he made his efforts in whichever films he worked. He was un-paralled in Punjabi music (Film as well as non-film).
