Mera Pind (English: My village) is a Punjabi film directed and produced Manmohan Singh. The film stars Harbhajan Mann, Navjot Singh Sidhu, Kimi Verma and Gurpreet Ghuggi in the lead roles. The film was released on 20 September 2008.
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.
Mera Pind was successful at the box office, both domestically and overseas. In Punjab it broke the record of the highest opening for a Punjabi film, grossing 50 lakhs over its first weekend. Overseas the film had a limited release but did "extraordinary" business as it grossed 55 lakhs in the United Kingdom, 75 lakhs in North America and broke another record for the three day total grossing 1.55 crore nett from just 25 prints. The film grossed a worldwide total of 2.75 crore nett from two weeks and was declared a Blockbuster.
