With the international music video "Aarachar", director of "Wazir" Bejoy Nambiar and popular Kerala rock band Thaikkudam Bridge have come together for a musical project which could set the tone for several similar songs and albums in the coming months.

"Aarachar" is a political satire aimed at the bureaucracy in our nation, and with Aditi Rao Hydari starring in the video with a goth look, the album is all set to top the charts.

"Aarachar is a strong message against the hangmen who live amongst us sucking out the sane breath of every Indian. It is about some of the dirtiest scams which have rocked our nation. As artistes we have a moral responsibility to our nation and it’s through art that every revolution has begun," the band said in a release.

"It's got the fire starter quality to it. I deliberately wanted to get out of a narrative based approach and try and do something completely different in the treatment. The style and the grandness was planned to give the video a wider appeal," Nambiar said in a statement.

And the band said on its Facebook page,

"Revelation and revolution begins with art !
We stand up against corruption and the fascist intolerance plaguing the nation . We hate the noose around our necks and we love our country.
Yes patriotism is our religion and there is no cage you can lock us in!!!
Presenting "Aarachar ; The Hangman" Our voice for a change , our heads up for revolt."
