US-based Penn Masala—the " world’s first and premier South Asian a cappella group"— covered and compressed eight decades of film music in their 5:09 mt music video earlier in the year, and it is the turn of Shweta Subram, an Indo-Canadian vocalist to cover the period from 1950s to now in a 5:17 mt video: from Saiyan Dil Mein Aana Re [1951] To Baby Doll [2014].

Shweta Subram hosted the Drive Home show on HumDesi Radio, the largest radio station in North America, prior to which she was the host and reporter of the television program "Sounds of India" on Rogers Channel 22 in Canada, and RJ for CKCU 97.9 FM (CHIN FM).

She is a recipient of multiple awards including the North American Best Singer award from Sangam Kala Group, and Best Singer Award from Shankar Mahadevan Academy's talent hunt.

But a look at the songlist makes the claims collapse, as there seems to be a preponderance of recent songs, and those too of the item no type:
 

  1. Babuji Dheere Chalna
  2. Saiyaan dil meN aanaa re
  3. Kajraa Mohabbat waalaa
  4. Ajeeb dastaan hai ye
  5. Dum Maaro Dum
  6. Chura Liyaa hai tumne jo dil ko
  7. Aap Jaisa Koii merii Zindagii
  8. Choli ke piichhe kyaa hai
  9. Mehndi lagaa ke rakhnaa
  10. Ho jaa rangiilaa re
  11. Race Saanson Kii
  12. Kajraa re
  13. BiiRii jaalaaii re
  14. Paanii daa rang dekh wekh ke
  15. Baby Doll

 

Penn Masala had clearly managed to compress far many more songs in their shorter video:

  2. "Mera Joota Hai Japani" - Shree 420
  3. "Eeena Meena Deeka" - Aasha

  7. "Hum Tum Ek Kamre Mein Band Hon" - Bobby
  8. "Yeh Dosti" - Sholay
  9. "Bachna Ae Haseeno" - Hum Kisise Kum Naheen
  10. "Khaike Pan Banaraswala" - Don
  11. "Om Shanti Om" - Karz
  12. "Inteha Ho Gayi Intezaar Ki" - Sharaabi
  13. "Pehla Nasha" - Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar
  14. "Mehndi Laga Ke Rakhna" - Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
  15. "Muqabla" - Humse Hai Muqabla
  16. "Dil To Pagal Hai" - Dil To Pagal Hai
  17. "Chaiyya Chaiyya" - Dil Se
  18. "Meri Mehbooba" - Pardes
  19. "Koi Mil Gaya" - Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
  20. "Tunak Tunak Tun" - Daler Mehndi
  21. "Dhol Baaje" - Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
  22. "Kahin Aag Lage" - Taal
