Waving swords, so far, against thugs have yielded good results to Darshan but for a change, he holds a gun in the James Bond style in Chingari. Known for his action movies, the Challenging star will be seen in an entirely different role in the film, which is loosely inspired by Hollywood movie Taken.

CCB Officer Parashurami's girlfriend Geetha (Deepika Kamaiah) leaves Karnataka against his wish and gets kidnapped in Switzerland by slave traders, who traffic girls into prostitution. He has just five days to find her before she gets auctioned like material objects at market. His earlier good deed comes to his help after a business tycoon, whose life was saved by the cop, arranges him a special aircraft to reach Swiss. The remaining part is how he tracks down the baddies and rescues his sweetheart.

Choreographer-turned-director A Harsha has a vengeful subject in his hands with a tailor-made actor for action movies. The story runs at a rapid speed with some flashbacks and some twists in the tale. He ensures that the Kannada audience, who are used to four-fights-one-item-number kind of action dramas, get to feel a new experience by making the film in a Hollywood style. Adding to that, the major part of the film is shot in Switzerland and watching the scenic beauty of the Swiss is an eye-pleasing treat for the viewers.
