Mouni Roy and singer Jubin Nautiyal finally dropped the music video of their second collaborative track Dotara on Tuesday, March 21. Besides Nautiyal, the romantic rendition has also received the melodious vocals of musician Payal Dev. The track which is said to be the reimagined version of the MTV Coke Studio track, Sundori Komola, is accentuated with elaborative royal sets and extravagant decor, from massive chandeliers to regal costumes. With elegant steps choreographed by Bosco-Caesar, Mouni Roy takes an imperial turn by posing as a princess.
She falls in love with a handsome young man (Played by Jubin Nautiyal) but their romance isn’t accepted by a monarch (Played by Darsh Kothari). The twisted love triangle is the central theme of the background film being recorded in the music video. Mouni Roy and Jubin Nautiyal fall head over heels for each other, but when the king is informed about their romance, he runs to punish the lovers in slow motion towards the end. The track penned by Vayu also contains Bengali lyrics to match the musical beats that remind viewers of Bengali folk music. Watch Dotara’s music video here:
