Panchayat Season 3 Review

Panchayat Season 3 Review: Secretary ji has returned to Phulera village. Yes, Abhishek Tripathi (Jitendra Kumar) was transferred, but now it has been cancelled. Here, Pradhan ji (Raghubir Yadav) and Manju Devi (Neena Gupta) are in trouble. Banarakas (Durgesh Kumar) is hell bent on cutting Pradhan ji’s place. He has joined the local MLA (Pankaj Jha). This competition to save the reputation between MLA ji and Pradhan ji is at its peak.

The season begins with the new secretary coming to Phulera village to replace Abhishek Tripathi (Jitendra Kumar). In the last season, Abhishek Tripathi was transferred informally. Pradhan ji is strongly against this. He opposes it so much that the new secretary is not even able to complete the formalities of joining. Prahlad threatens him, his strategy makes the situation worse. Overall, Abhishek Tripathi returns to Phulera.

Meanwhile, Pradhan ji and Manju Devi have fraudulently allotted a house to an old woman under the PM Awas Yojana. Bhushan and Binod suspect that something is wrong. Both investigate it. MLA Chandrakishore Singh is jailed for killing a dog. On release, an agreement is also reached between Pradhan ji and MLA ji. But in the meantime, there is also a pigeon, which is killed. As a result, chaos spreads in the village.

‘Panchayat Season 3’ Review

This third season of the ‘Panchayat’ web series is also interesting and entertaining like the previous two seasons. It gives you every taste, every spice, which you are expecting while watching it. Although, there are shortcomings in the main plot of this third season, but the producer and director have compensated for it with many parallel events. Therefore, your attention does not get diverted. The story of this season is not centered on the character of Jitendra Kumar i.e. Secretary ji. Rather, the focus is on the characters of other characters of the series such as Bhushan/Banarakas, his wife Kranti Devi (Sunita Rajwar), Prahlad (Faisal Malik), Binod (Ashok Pathak), Chandrakant Singh, MLA. The environment of the series ‘Panchayat’ is such that it has a different charm and you feel it in the third season as well. It flows like a cool breeze under a banyan tree in the afternoon and finally gives a hint about the fourth season.

In this season, ‘Panchayat’ has been made an event based series. This is a double-edged sword in a way, because those viewers who want to see the original story of Secretary Abhishek Tripathi may be a little disappointed. But one advantage is that the new viewers of the series can easily connect with this season without much effort. In the third season, the producer-director has made sure that the flavour of Panchayat is maintained. It has all the attractive elements like the village setting, the village dialect, the desi feel, everything.

Throughout the season, Bhushan and Binod’s scenes win your heart. Their chemistry and Binod’s clear way of speaking is magical. Prahlad’s character has received more attention. Other characters like Jagmohan and his mother are also in the spotlight this time. The rivalry between the residents of Phulera and the local MLA is now out in the open. The village scenes have been kept in the screenplay in a way that looks absolutely real and that is great.

Jitendra Kumar has given a superb performance as Abhishek Tripathi. But in this third season, nothing new has been added to his character. This time the story is centered around Neena Gupta and Raghubir Yadav. Chandan Roy is once again excellent as Vikas. Faisal Malik’s character as Prahlad has been expanded and he has made everyone happy with his strong performance. This season will be remembered for the performances of Durgesh Kumar as Bhushan and Ashok Pathak as Vinod.

Earlier it was thought that the ‘Panchayat’ web series would end with the third season, but it is not so. The events of this season show that the makers are going to continue this series further. The show remains entertaining and the makers deserve praise for it. However, this time the plot is missing. The entire season has been based on events. The attraction of the characters remains and the biggest feature of the show, its simplicity, once again wins hearts.

Why watch – ‘Panchayat’ is one of those rare shows where the artist or rather his character becomes bigger than the story. If you like simplicity and Indianness, and want to watch something in the scorching heat that soothes your heart and mind like a cool breeze, then definitely watch ‘Panchayat Season 3’.
