F.I.R. is an Indian television sitcom that aired from 31 July 2006 to 23 January 2015, on SAB TV. The show was produced by Edit 2 Productions . It was nominated for the Best Sitcom category at the Indian Telly Awards in 2009. It again telecast its old episodes on Sab TV from 3 April 2017. The sitcom was set in a police station.
F.I.R. is a situational comedy serial centered on a Haryanvi female police officer named Chandramukhi Chautala (Kavita Kaushik) and her three subordinates, Head Constable Gopinath Gandothra (Gopi Bhalla), Constable Mulayam Singh Gulgule (Kiku Sharda) and Constable Billu (Sandeep Anand), who later joined the Chowki. The show depicted their lives as they try to solve every case which comes to Imman Chowki, Ravanpur.
New cases come to the police station in every episode. An individual or a group 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, or bad cooking. Chandramukhi Chautala and her constables solve the case successfully though the case has nothing to do with their official duties as police officers.
The show also had some love angles of Chandramukhi Chautala with the Chief Inspectors (with one at a time) of Imman Chowki. First was Hanuman Prasad Pandey (Shiv Pandit) which was one sided from Chandramukhi, second was Raj Aaryan (Ali Asgar) which was one sided from Raj, and third was Bajrang Pandey (Aamir Ali), both he and Chandramukhi love each other but Bajrang fears to admit his love.
The show took a 20-year leap on 16 March 2013, when Kavita Kaushik, who played the lead role of Chandramukhi Chautala, departed from the show and Jwalamukhi Chautala (Chitrashi Rawat) was introduced as Chandramukhi's daughter, who reveals that Chandramukhi got married with Bajrang Pandey. This 20 year leap story wasn't much praised by fans and show started suffering losses, so within less than 4 months after the 20 year leap (approx. 70 episodes), the changes of 20 year leap were reverted on 8 July 2013 and the incidents which occurred in the 20 year leap were converted into constable Gopi's dream and the show then continued along with Chandramukhi Chautala's (Kavita Kaushik's) return and after some months Gulgule (Kiku Sharda) and Bajrang (Aamir Ali) too returned one by one in the show.
