FIR is an ongoing Indian television sitcom that premiered on July 31, 2006 on SAB TV. The sitcom was nominated for the "Best Sitcom/Comedy Programme" category at the Indian Telly Awards in 2009. One of the major characters of the show, Chandramukhi Chautala, won the award for Best Actress in a Comic Role.
F.I.R. is an acronym for "First Information Report' that the Indian police prepares for each case to be investigated. The story revolves around five police personnel at a police station named Iman Chowki (honest police post) and depicts the daily events there in a comical and farcical manner. The central theme of the show is the unorthodox and funny tricks and unpolice-like methods used by the characters to solve a new case every day.
Three of the characters are central to the sitcom and appear in every show. They are: Chandramukhi Chautala, a lady sub-inspector, and two constables, Mulayam Singh Gulgule and Gopinath Gandotra. These three characters have been played by the same actors in all the shows. The fourth character, Bajrang Pandey, is a police inspector and the boss of the lady sub-inspector. He appears in some of the shows. The actors playing the inspector have changed as the show has progressed over the years. Koki is a slim lady constable whose only role is to quote a small rhyming couplet and then disappear.
Chandramukhi Chautala is the central character in the show. She is young, educated, informed and well-built. She is from Haryana and speaks with Haryanvi accent, her regional dialect of Hindi language. Sometimes she speaks words or whole sentences in Haryanvi. She never fails to solve a case. She bosses over not only her juniors but also over her boss, the police inspector, who sometimes gets amorous with her but she always rebuffs him successfully.
Mulayam Singh Gulgule, a middle-aged married constable is the second most important character in the show. He gives ideas to Chandramukhi to try to solve a case. He always flatters his boss by saying that the idea he has given is actually her own idea that just happened to come to his mind. Yet she keeps on slapping him hard on the slightest pretext but he never protests. He speaks and acts in a funny way. He is a big foodie and fat person.
Gopinath Gandotra is an aged constable who speaks in Punjabi accent. He is not much involved in solving the cases and instead spends most of his time reading newspaper and trying to speak in very bad English. Chandramukhi calls him Uncle and makes fun of him but rarely slaps him. Koki is a young petite girl constable who has a very minor role of speaking in rhymes that suit the occasion and then disappear. The police inspector Bajrang Pandey is the most senior officer in the police station. He is young and afraid of being married as he was informed by a soothsayer that he would die the moment he gets married. The lady sub-inspector wants to marry him and plays slightly amorous tricks with him but he rebuffs her.
The inspector was transferred to another police station after a few seasons and the new replacement is opposite of the earlier inspector. The new inspector wants to get involved amorously with the lady sub-inspector but she always rebuffs him successfully. This inspector is also transferred after a season and another replacement comes.
A new case comes to the police station every day. A person or persons come with a complaint or a problem. The problem generally has nothing to do with police. It may be a case of love, divorce, snoring, bad cooking or anything under the sun. The lady and her constables solve the case successfully though the case has nothing to do with their official duties as police officers. They use highly unorthodox but successful methods. For example, a young girl comes to the police station complaining that her lover does not want to marry. The young man says that he has always seen his parents fighting and he is afraid of leading such a married life. The lady sub-inspector calls the parents who keep on fighting over trivial matters even in front of her. She calls a fake lawyer who declares that the couple’s marriage certificate is invalid in law. She also calls a fake priest who declares that he solemnized the couple’s marriage 25 years ago but was not competent to do so as he was a barber and not a priest. (When the couple protest that the priest appears to be younger than 25 years and would not have been born when they got married 25 years ago, the lady police officer certifies that the priest had got plastic surgery done and therefore appears so young.) She then declares that they were never married legally and were free to go their own way. But she invites the couple to get married again the next day in the police station if they love each other. She arranges flower decoration and other arrangements in the police station for a marriage. Their son is sure that they will not come the next day to get married but they do come and declare that they cannot live without each other. The son realizes that his parents love each other despite fighting over trivial matters every day. He then agrees to get married. Case solved. (As usual the constable and the young man get slapped a few times during the show.)
