Panchayat Season 2 Review: OTT has been flooded with content in the last few years and there is a lot of series of genres like crime, thriller, suspense, romantic. In the midst of all this, there are series like sweet spray TVF’s web series ‘Panchayat Season 2’. The way the first season won the hearts of people with its fresh style, it is evident that for the second season also the fans were eagerly waiting for the release of this series. The release date of this series was announced by Amazon Prime on May 20, but suddenly the shocking news came for the fans, when not one or two days ago i.e. on Wednesday night itself, this series was released on Amazon Prime Video.
This time what is the story of ‘Panchayat 2’
Abhishek Tripathi (Jeetendra Kumar) is the Panchayat Secretary of Phulera village and in the first season his friendship with Vikas (Chandan Roy), village head (Raghubir Yadav) and deputy head Prahlad (Faisal Malik) becomes. In the first season we saw that Abhishek wants to do a private job in a multinational company with a big package, but he finds himself trapped in the job of this village. Where the first season ends, the second season starts exactly 2 months after that. Now Abhishek has got used to living in this village. Now he has got a little accustomed to the environment of this village, although he still has his plan to leave this village after giving his exam in a few months. Like the first season, all the characters are still the same. Yes, this time Pradhan ji’s daughter Rinki (Saanvika) has a new entry in the show.
See, even when the OTT fever had not spread, TVF had started creating such content in the world of web series and digital, in which the saying ‘Content is the king’ started moving forward. This maturity of TVF can be clearly seen in the web series of director Deepak Kumar Mishra. In the process of making Season 2, we have seen the web series spreading, wandering and ruining, but in reality, the skill of how the story is taken forward can be learned from this series. In the character of Abhishek Tripathi, Jitendra Kumar has shown maturity with ease. Abhishek no longer pulls on everything like in the first season, but he has learned to smile here. But it is not that he is planning to settle here after a sudden ‘change of heart’. Abhishek is the hero of this series but he is not a hero-superhero, he is a human being with whom you can relate.
Actually, the most important thing about TVF’s content is its simplicity and its commonness, the story of such people who seem like you-us to us. This is also the specialty of the story of Panchayat 2. This web series of Amazon Prime has 8 episodes and each episode is of about 35 to 40 minutes. In the story of the first episode, the director has cleverly given answers to all those questions from the mouths of Prahlad and Vikas, which arose in your mind after seeing Abhishek and Rinki on the water tank at the end of the first season. In the era of ‘A boy and a girl can’t be friends..’, due to the chemistry between the secretary and Rinki, you will think while watching the series again and again that ‘Now something will happen and then something will happen’.
This time Jeetendra has been seen giving an equal fight, Chandan Roy i.e. who has made a lot of changes in his style along with full screen time. At the end of the first series, where you finally saw a ray of hope and love in Jeetendra’s life, the last episode of this time will make you cry. In the end, Prahlad shakes up the scene between Prahlad, Pradhanji, Vikas and Sachivji in the Panchayat office.
In this series, Sanvika is not ‘Gaon ki Gori’ but village’s dusky is engaged and what is it. She has looked very beautiful on the screen. Whenever Rinki will be seen on the screen, it is difficult to take her eyes off her face. My only complaint is that it would have been better if Rinki’s character was explored a little more in this series. In the end, if asked, this series must be seen and if you have seen the first season, then you must definitely see this world of Phulera village in the new season.
