I'm mainly bumping this, because I'd like to see an answer - but... I'd imagine long-tailed shrike is the only reasonable option.
 
This should be Long-tailed Shrike. It appears to have a rufous rump. Orangey edges to the tertials are another pointer, as is the dark tail. The apparent chestnut wash on the upperparts isn't typical and neither is the buff throat - the colours seem to be a bit off.
 
Can you share original pic? It looks bit purplish (or is it mobile screen that's wierd?)
Long-tailed/Bay-Backed Shrike to me. Colours are confusing.
No ssp. of Long-tailed shows such coloration (not sure if any one is left out)20210922_075012.jpg

Adult Long tailed shrike for me as well. The mask is perhaps too narrow and the tail feathers dont show much white edging for it to be a bay back. The throat colour is a bit unusual. (photo editing/camera settings artifact?)
 
There is a strong colour cast on the original photo in both the red and blue channels, and it also appears to be under-exposed. I've made some adjustments to clarify the image.
