Malayalees are known for brilliantly blending their culture with everything else, and Masala Coffee’s new music video is no exception. It starts out with a typical conversation-turned-argument between a couple. As the rock song starts playing, we see a surprisingly fun twist as the couple begins imagining themselves fighting each other, complete with leather jackets, in the middle of a forest. Now and then we see dark flashes of dancers wearing kathakali-style costumes, somehow matching the tone of the song perfectly.
Kari is Jagan Shaji Kailas’ debut music video, and he’s pulled off the concept brilliantly. Watch the video here:
