The film follows the story of an atheist, Mukunda, who sues God after losing his shop in an earthquake. Religious organizations revolt against him and Murari visits him as his human guide.
In January 2016, it was reported that director Nanda Kishore was under the preparation to remake the hit Bollywood film OMG - Oh My God! retaining the basic plot and giving it a native touch. Initially the film was titled 'Kiccha!! Nee Begane Baaro', 'Brahma Vishnu', 'Sri Krishanrjuna Vijaya', 'Super Star Mattu Bigg Boss' and the makers roped in two of the biggest stars Upendra and Sudeep to reprise the roles played by Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar respectively in the original version. Later the title was altered as the makers sound the earlier one was quite a common name. To bring the uniqueness to the title, it was christened as Mukunda Murari.
After having roped in Upendra and Sudeep to play the protagonist roles, the makers were on the search for the female lead and approached actress Prema hoping to bring her back to the screen after a long hiatus. Later Priyanka Upendra's name was also considered for this role. However, actress Nikita Thukral was finalized to play the wife role to Upendra. Further, actresses names such as Ramya Krishnan, Sadha and Nidhi Subbaiah were reported to play key supporting roles. Since none of these actresses were available, Ishita Vyas and Kaavya Shah were roped in to play those roles. The director went on to cast P. Ravi Shankar and Avinash to play other key roles.
The first look of the film's poster was unveiled on 1 September 2016. The film released in over 250 screens on 28 October 2016.
The film was released on the occasion of Deepavali and capitalized on the festival season by doing fantastic business. By the end of its first week, Mukundra Murari grossed a little over Rs 10 crore. The film collected ₹20 crore after completing 50 days of run in theaters.
