Can a medley get better than what Penn Masala has offered you with their latest video Evolution of Bollywood Music? No, we guess. You would be completely left in awe and you jaw will drop, seeing the band’s oh-so-perfect transition from the black and white era’s song Suhani Raat Dhal Chuki to the slow Pehla Nasha to the colourful age of Badtameez Dil, among other numbers.
In what looks like an ode to Bollywood, Penn Masala, the world’s first Hindi Capella starts off with Mohammad Rafi’s song Suhani Raat Dhal Chuki, Na Jaane Tum Kab Aaoge? and sets the pace for the best Bollywood mashup ever!
From here, they move on to Mera Joota Hai Japani from Mera Naam Joker to hit it off to the 1970s’ era with the sexy number featuring Rajesh Khanna-Sharmila Tagore – Roop Tera Mastana. You love the change in the video tone from black and white to sepia and their clothes to more floral from the ’70s.
Shahrukh Khan fans would love this video, as his songs have been featured more, like Mehndi Laga ke Rakhna from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kisi Roz Tumse from Pardes, Chaiyya Chaiyya from Dil Se, Dil Toh Pagal Hai title song, Koi Mil Gaya from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and the Om Shanti Om song to Jiya Re from Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
Their’s an inclusion of notable Bollywood item numbers like Kajra Re, Munni Badnaam Hui and Sheila Ki Jawaani to Daler Mehendi’s Bolo Tara Ra Ra. The mashup peaks with A R Rahman’s Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire.
Even Indian Superhero Hrithik Roshan re tweeted the post by Penn Masala’s tweet on singing song from his debut movie Kaho Na Pyar Hai.
