Panchayat Season 3 Review: A Bittersweet Blend of Laughs and Reality


The highly anticipated third season of the popular web series “Panchayat” has returned to Amazon Prime Video, and it’s already making waves among fans. Created by TVF (The Viral Fever), “Panchayat” continues to explore the quirky and often chaotic world of rural governance, with a fresh twist in its third installment.

The Premise

“Panchayat” Season 3 picks up where the previous season left off. The show revolves around the fictional village of Phulera and its quirky inhabitants. The central character, Abhishek Tripathi (played by Jitendra Kumar), is back amidst the village election drama. As the newly appointed secretary, he faces challenges, dilemmas, and unexpected situations that test his wit and resolve.

What’s New in Panchayat Season 3?

In this season, the show delves deeper into the lives of the villagers, highlighting their struggles, aspirations, and the complexities of rural India. Here are some key elements:

  1. Real-Life Issues: The first four episodes continue to explore the mundane yet significant aspects of village life. From sugarcane farming to bamboo weaving, the show portrays the day-to-day struggles faced by the villagers.
  2. Changing Dynamics: With a new secretary in place, the dynamics of the panchayat shift. Abhishek’s interactions with the villagers, especially Pradhanji (Neena Gupta) and Rinki (Raghuvir Yadav), add depth to the narrative.
  3. Political Intrigues: Enter Bhushan (Pankaj Jha), a political aspirant who aims to gain control over the Phulera Gram Panchayat. His maneuvers and power plays create tension and suspense.
  4. Emotional Moments: Amidst the drama, the show doesn’t shy away from emotional moments. Whether it’s Pradhanji’s grief over her son’s death or Abhishek’s internal conflicts, the characters’ vulnerabilities are portrayed realistically.
  5. The Explosive Finale: The eighth episode takes an unexpected turn, reminiscent of the 2021 Baghpat Chat Yudh (a famous local conflict). It leaves viewers on the edge of their seats, eager for more.

Stellar Performances

Jitendra Kumar shines as Abhishek, capturing the essence of a young bureaucrat navigating rural complexities. Neena Gupta and Raghuvir Yadav reprise their roles with finesse, while Pankaj Jha adds intrigue as the ambitious Bhushan.

Verdict of Panchayat Season 3

“Panchayat” Season 3 may not rush forward at breakneck speed, but it weaves a relatable and engaging tale. Its slow-burning narrative gradually builds up to a satisfying climax. If you’re a fan of slice-of-life dramas with heartwarming moments, this season is worth a watch.
