You must immediately issue him the legal notice. You may further file a suit or approach Labour court/commissioner for recovering your dues with interest and penalty. The jurisdiction will be determined depending upon your designation and the nature of employment you are in to.

First take their acknowledgment by signature in someway like Move an application to remind your employer that you have not been paid for 4 months, asking him for releasing your earlier dues. and keep duplicate with you in receipt of your application.
if he will not pay you within a week mention time period to release your earlier dues. thereafter give 15 days notice or 1 month. thereafter you can file suit.
