The video starts with visuals from Yaadhum Oore Yaavarum Kelir, where Vijay Sethupathi is seen dancing with other devotees in a temple, donning a black shirt and a veshti (an ethnic costume worn by Indian men). We also see female devotees dressed in yellow sarees and performing Kavadhi Aatam, a ceremonial dance performed by devotees of the Hindu god Muruga.
Glimpses of the crew at the sets of the film have also been added to the lyric video of ‘Muruga’. However, most of the visuals feature videos of actor Silambarasan at the studio, recording the song. The lyrics of the energetic number is penned in the format of a devotee addressing lord Muruga. The peppy track also has popular lines from Thirupugazh, a religious text dedicated to the deity, sung as a rap.
‘Muruga’ is set to tune by Nivas K Prasanna, who has also rendered his voice for the track alongside Simbu. The rap segment is performed by MC Sai, and features lyrics by Mohan Rajan.

The movie is spearheaded by director Venkata Krishna Roghanth. Yaadhum Oore
