Be it an enemy from the outer space, a monster attack or any other wrongdoer, ‘Chingum ke changon se bachna empossible hai’. Set in the fictional village of Shantiwood, Inspector Chingam is a 52-episode long animated series designed to entertain the younger audience along with teaching them, important morals in a fun and entertaining way.

Talking about the character and his personality traits, Suhas Kadav, CCO Cosmos Maya and the creator of Inspector Chingam says, “The character of Inspector Chingum is inspired from Superstar Rajinikanth. He is an action hero with an epic comic timing, who has a heart of gold, helps everyone in need and carries out his duties with immense diligence. It’s his ‘misadventures’ that make the character both comical and action oriented.”

Each episode of the series will feature funky rap songs by Baba Sehgal. The makers have also acquired the rights from T-series to some of Bollywood’s popular dance numbers like Lungi Dance and HuddHuddDabangg etc. There are also a group of animals that act as secret agents or the Kahbris. Talking about these elements, he says, “This is done in order to help the kids connect better and ensure overall entertainment.” The character of Inspector Chingum is that of an adult cop, but the show is a child-based one.

Asked about the thing, he had to keep in mind while creating the characters and the content for the show, Suhas said, “The important thing is to make the character in such a way that the younger audience can relate to it. Take Inspector Chingum for example, though he is an adult cop, his forgetfulness, comic timing, goofy attitude etc., makes him very interesting for the kids to watch. They have a lot of fun watching an adult mess things up.” He says that “it is important that we strike a proper balance with action, drama, and entertainment as excess or any lack of such elements makes the audience lose interest”.

The season one of the show was initially aired on Amazon Prime Video, but due to its immense popularity, the makers had to combine season one and two and release them together on Disney’s Hungama. Now, a total of 52 episodes are being telecasted everyday at 11:30 am, 1 pm, 2 pm and 2: 30 pm on Hungama. The work on script for season 3 is already in progress.
