Mera Pind (English: My village) is a Punjabi film released on 20 September 2008, directed and produced Manmohan Singh.[1] The film stars Harbhajan Mann, Navjot Singh Sidhu, Kimi Verma and Gurpreet Ghuggi.


Mera Pind is the story of a well-to-do NRI Navroz Singh Lamba (Navjot Sidhu) who has chosen to settle in his native village and spread the message of empowerment and entrepreneurship among the village youth. Led by Himmat (Harbhajan Maan), the youth set off a revolution in the development of the village. It inspires Punjabis who are increasingly opting to settle abroad, to undertake business in their own villages and cities. Mera Pind is also a story of a young man seeking his love, the only barrier being the girl's father.
