o.p. nayyar Biography

Born on January 16, 1926 in Lahore (now in Pakistan), Omkar Prasad Nayyar got his first break as a music composer in the film ‘Kaneez’ (1949).

Director Guru Dutt's ‘Aar Paar’ (1954) was his first major success. This led to his successful partnership with Dutt on films like ‘Mr And Mrs 55’ and ‘CID’.

Extensive use of the typical Punjabi rhythm was the main characteristic of Nayyar's music, and among his evergreen tunes were "Kahin Pe Nigahen Kanhi Pe Nishana" (CID), "Mang Ke Saath Tumhara" (Naya Daur) and "Ello Main Hari Piyan" (Aar Paar).

Even though, Lata Mangeshkar was a top playback singer for many decades, Nayyar never used her services and opted for her sister Asha Bhosle, who sang some of her most famous songs for him.

He is survived by his three daughters and a son.
