The trailer of the film was launched on 18 July and looked quite promising. Now, the first song 'I am India' is out and really builds up the entire mood of the film, which is slated to release on 25 August, 2017, just after the Independence Day week.

Qaidi Band is based on a bunch of undertrials living in a prison who get an opportunity to start a music band inside the prison. The film revolves around their journey of finding an escape from this imprisonment (literally and figuratively) through music. This film, in someways also reflects upon the jail administration in India and the plight of prisoners (undertrials in this case).

Composed by Amit Trivedi and sung by Arijit Singh and Yashita Sharma, the song is picturised inside the prison where the members of the Qaidi Band, headed by Aadar and Anya's characters, perform this song — completely charged with the Tricolour and patriotic spirit (yeah, there's lot of 'jhanda oocha rahe hamara' movements).

Qaidi Band is written and directed by Habib Faisal, who launched Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra in his 2012 movie Ishaqzaade.

Here's the song:
