Every episode will have a special song and this is one of the biggest highlights of the series. The series features an entire album of 52 songs created by singer and rapper Sehgal.
Inspector Chingum, the in-charge of Shantiwood Police station, hails from a small village and has a strong South Indian accent. Chingum is kind and helps everyone who requests his help. Chingum goes about performing his duties with a lot of enthusiasm. His misadventures make his character very comical, yet action-oriented. Chingum’s dream of making Shantiwood a Zero Crime City makes him a strong believer that without his consent; no crime can take place in his town. Chingum is faced by a vicious villain No Baal, who wants to takeover Shantiwood and its people. No Baal secretly owns the Crime University, which regularly dispatches villains every now and then to fight and defeat Chingum. Chingum is accompanied by his two assistants Hera and Pheri, along with Khabrilal, Chatur, Dosa Anna and Bozo.
Anish Mehta, CEO, Cosmos-Maya, said, “We are an IP focused company and the launch of Inspector Chingum is in line with our vision. The series boasts of a never-seen-before animation style. It has always been a pleasure working with Amazon Prime Video and we look forward to many more collaborations in the future. It uses high quality 3D animation in a 22 min format and each episode is being treated as a mini film. We believe in the marriage of linear and nonlinear platforms, thereby bringing the best of both worlds together.”
Ketan Mehta, MD, Cosmos-Maya, said, “The advent of the digital platforms has empowered storytellers in a way that they can use new formats for their narratives. We are fortunate to be in this era of the content business, where linear and nonlinear platforms coexist and have plans to make the most of it.”
