Sung by Papon, and composed by Amit Trivedi, the song captures the transformation of an ordinary Bhavesh Joshi into the superhero vigilante.

Amit Trivedi delivers a soundtrack to watch out for in Bhavesh Joshi Superhero. The film's third song, 'Qasam Kha Li', focuses on the transformation of Harshvardhan Kapoor's character from an idealistic young man into the vengeful vigilante.
The song captures the slow evolution of Bhavesh Joshi, the superhero. From the visuals shown, it is easy to assume that the song begins in the aftermath of the death of Kapoor's close friend, as shown in the trailer. The death pushes the character to a crossroad where he has to choose between accepting the reality of the country quietly, or fighting against it.
As Kapoor's dream to join a job and move abroad begins to come to light, he chooses to change. Soon, we see him undergoing a brutal training and fighting with sticks to set on the path of becoming the vigilante.
Sung by Papon, 'Qasam Kha Li' has a dark undertone to it that comes across well.
Amitabh Bhattacharya's lyrics ring out with bitterness, and anger against the society as a whole. The song builds up to a wonderful crescendo as Bhavesh Joshi decides his path, and makes an impact. Papon's gravelly voice adds a texture to the composition, and Trivedi's soft rock background adds to the effect.
