KOCHI: A rain-soaked ground, three goal posts and kids playing barefooted to Shakira’s La La La, Jayan Mohan and Dijo Devassy’s four minute video ‘La La La Made in Kerala Ready’ is a tribute to ‘O jogo bonito’, the beautiful game.

Shot at Kalamboor, Piravam, the video is the result of their snap decision to give a Keralite touch to Shakira’s world cup song. “Its football everywhere, I was chatting with a friend when we hit upon with the idea of giving a Malayali spin to Shakira’s song,” says Jayan, the director of the video.

What went into their work was the thought of bringing a nostalgic effect of playing on paddy fields barefooted, rain for the slow-motion effect and financial support from friends and family. In eight hours, the video was shot.

“The rain became both villain and hero. We wanted it to rain for the video to come out the way we wanted it to be. It rained twice and the field dried up immediately. The third time it rained and we got what we wanted,” said Dijo, who shot the video.

For those who know Jayan, the video was not a surprise. Cinema was always his passion and he has some experience  in various departments of film making. The video uploaded on Youtube last week has more than six thousand views. The ‘actors’ in the video are budding footballers from his neighbourhood.
