TVF has become synonymous with good content on Indian Web space. They had similar start like AIB but had better plans to not include abusive language or insult comedy that can turn offensive in longer doses. They diversified and today, they have a reputation that their shows have best quality writing and actors. After Kota Factory, Cheesecake and Hostel Daze, they came up with Panchayat during lockdown period without much publicity. Still the show managed to become a huge hit. Is the hype worth it?

Rarely, we get to say that hype around a show or a film or a person, lives up to the highest level of expectations you have. Panchayat belongs to that rare category. Show feels like every person's story rather than something that you have to wrap your head around.

It tries to engage you with characters and absurdity of living in a village after being an out and out city person. You might have huge dreams but you need self evaluation, discipline and more importantly positive attitude towards your goal, no matter whatever situation, you might be in.

Panchayat tries to tell that through not one character but two. It uses Abhishek, its lead character to drive the message home directly but cleverly uses a character that they have kept on sideburn to drive home the point, indirectly. It doesn't try to make the characters look like too innocent or too cunning. It just gives them traits that make them selfishly innocent and acceptably grey.

You feel like you can depend on them at the same time you need to keep your expectations in check around them, as you never know, when they might shift the blame on you. But that is how, the real world is. That is how, human nature works.

Series doesn't have huge arc but tells the simple story in a very engaging way that you doesn't want it to end. Even the biggest political issue is dealt in a very subtle and humoristic way that you can watch it without having to cringe. This is a series that reminds us of those simple stories of village that Shyam Benegal used narrate and it also reminds us of realistic comedies that Gulzar, Basu Chaterjee once made!

Our Recommendation: A must-watch!
