S. Mohinder (or some times referred as S. Mohinder)
is a name not known to many music lovers in spite of
the fact that he gave melodious music to several Hindi
and Punjabi films from as early as 1948 and till as
late as early 90’s. Mohinder Singh Sarna was born in
a small town in Punjab, now a part of Pakistan. His
famous songs are “Tera kaam hain jalna parawane “(Mohd.
Rafi for the film Paapi) and “Guzara hua zamana aata
nahi dobara” (Lata Mangeshkar for the film Shirin Farhad).
S. Mohinder got the Presidential Annual Award for the
best music for his musical score for the super hit Punjabi
Sikh religion based movie “Nanak Naam Jahaz Hai” in
the year 1970.
Geeta ji has sung relatively fewer songs for S. Mohinder.
Their earliest association was for a duet “Do naina
tumhaare pyaare “sung by Geeta Dutt and Hemant Kumar
for the Shyama starrer film Shrimatiji (1952).This film’s
music was composed by S. Mohinder, Jimmy and Basant
Prakash. This duet with Hemantda is a simple sweet romantic
number and is one of the popular songs of Geeta Dutt.
