The five and a half minutes long song video opens with a title card, ‘A chapter from everyone’s life.’ Then cuts to a group of friends, one of whom says to Rakshan, “Priya was standing by your side all along. She did not move a bit. So much love.” One of the other friends intrudes, “Look he is blushing. Only true love draws such a reaction. Dude while standing outside, you were admiring the rain, she was admiring you. It was like a heroine and hero in movies.” Actor Rakshan, overcome with joy, starts to leave from the gang riding his bicycle, neglecting his friend shouting to pick him up. Singer Sachin Warrier has lent his voice for the song. Lyricist Thamarai has written the lyrics of the track. The song has garnered the attention of young audiences, and has clocked millions of views setting high expectations on the drama.
