This article is written by Sudhir, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

Om Prakash holds a special position amongst the comedy / character artists in the Hindi film world. Hailing from Jammu (born 1919), he started his acting career on stage. Then after a brief stint at the All India Radio in Lahore, he got his first major break in the movies in early 1940s, with the famous producer director DS Pancholi. He did some movies in Lahore, including Daasi, Dhamki, and Aayee Bahaar. After partition, he moved to Bombay. In a career that lasted a little over five decades, he is credited with acting in 300 plus films. Om Prakash has always held out on his own even in the presence of many leading lights of their times, having worked with the three great actors of 50s and 60s, down to working with Big B in the 1980s.

He has a fair share of pivotal roles that he played in many movies during his career; in fact the success of many movies is attributed to his roles, viz. Chupke Chupke, Julie, Sharaabi, Namak Halaal, Gopi, Sadhu aur Shaitaan, Annadata, Buddha Mil Gaya etc.
