A Forbidden Love Story

This video is based on the legendary love story of Heer-Ranjaah. In a modern interpretation it could be the lovers are separated because of caste differences and since the families do not approve of their coming together, the girl is abducted by the family so that the lovers are kept apart. With the unhealthy trend of honour killings, may be the young lovers are ill-fated not to come together. In a daring attempt to rescue his lady love, the boy puts up a fight but he is outnumbered and is killed leaving the girl to grieve over him.

The rich visuals blend with the Rajasthani folk song and the lyrics echo the pain and longing of the lovers.
