“Panchayat Season 2.” Panchayat is a comedy-drama series that reclaims the same charm that it had spread throughout its first season, and in many ways, perhaps adds to its depth. While Panchayat Season 1 is almost identical to the launch of the main character, Abhishek Tripathi, and to our audiences, in daily life in Phulera and its problems, the new season takes into account many political and social issues.
The show’s writing and acting performance remain high, and as the new season progresses more than its predecessor successfully brings out all the emotions. In Panchayat Season 2 has the power to make a person cry as much as it makes a person laugh, and it remains something to be fully watched.
Panchayat Season 2: Synopsis
After Abhishek Tripathi’s unsuccessful attempt at the CAT exams, the panchayat secretary resides in the typical Phulera district for one year of administrative work and his MBA preparations. However, the young man is now more out of touch with rural life and less frustrated than before. Now he gives the impression that, as a panchayat secretary, he is able to view the unique problems of the residents as his own. His relationship with his three colleagues — formerly Pradhan Brij Bhushan Dubey, deputy Pradhan Prahlad Pandey, and office assistant Vikas — is now much stronger, as they have transcended friendships on the way to relationships.
The last time we saw Abhishek in Phulera was on top of a tall water tank tower, as he made presentations with Brij Bhushan’s daughter Rinki. It almost felt like he was in a romantic interest in a young woman of the same age, and the writers seemed to be playing with that feeling, as no romantic relationship or close thing was established between the two of them. Instead, Vikas and Prahlad are now struck by the same emotions as spectators — the possibility of a romantic relationship between the couple.
Although their point is quickly pushed by Abhishek, the feeling of romantic interest really cooks quite a bit towards the end of the season. The show also features criminals in this regard, one in the form of Brij Bhushan’s political rival and the current town of Pradhan Manju Devi, and the other as a corrupt government MLA. There is also a sense of political urgency this season, with village elections very close, and Pradhan and her husband are looking for ways to keep their voters happy and in hand.
Abhishek Tripathi continues to find solutions to all such problems in succession, this time with great dedication while maintaining his CAT plans and dreams for IMs and MBAs.
Panchayat Season 2: Ending,
This season has introduced another less important but important character in the program — Prahlad’s son Rahul, a soldier serving in the Indian Army. Prahlad, who became a widow 12 years ago, is often alone but happy to be with his son when a young man comes home from work on vacation. The day before the prayer event is about to begin, and while he is having a beer with his friends, Prahlad receives a phone call informing him of the sudden death of his son, who was sent to Kashmir.
The whole scene of the city changes dramatically, as the media and then the martyr’s body arrive to perform ceremonial rituals. Everyone meets the frightened Prahlad to pay homage to his son, as military personnel also hand over the young man at gunpoint. Along with the sudden change, of course, the structure, and the way the text and pictures deal with this situation make it an extremely emotional clock. Faisal Malik, who plays the role of Prahlad, deserves to be mentioned. As the days go by, the man spends his days alone, shutting himself in his house, trying to accept the fact that he now has no family of his own.
Brij Bhushan, Vikas, and Abhishek, heartbroken and depressed, visited their friend and brought him to the panchayat office for dinner. Prahlad cries out expressing his loneliness, while Brij Bhushan cries equally trying to comfort him that he still has a large family left, despite the fact that none of them are connected to blood. This too was unmistakable, when the whole village stood together mourning the death of such a young man.
A group of four friends inside the panchayat office amplifies the mood even more, as it reveals a heartfelt charge that quickly touches the audience. It is in this scene that the series ends, with a reminder of the absolute truth that friends who laugh and celebrate together also have the ability to cry together and comfort each other.
Earlier, when Rahul’s body was brought into the village accompanied by a convoy, a ruthless MP, Chandrakishore Singh, rushed to the scene with his bodyguards, no doubt highlighting his portrait. But the man was soon stopped by Manju Devi and a large group of other women who refused to let him pass beyond the panchayat office.
Manju Devi confronted her about her immorality and her sad attitude toward others and convinced her to leave the village. Singh immediately asked his men to prepare Abhishek’s transfer order, and this received extra attention in the post-mortgage scene at the end of the last episode. An official letter arrives at Manju Devi’s house, and Linky informs his mother that it is a legal order to transfer the panchayat secretary.
With the good success of Panchayat and the formation of season 2, it is probably clear that the game will return for season 3. When Abhishek arrives next when the transfer order has stopped it can be very noticeable, as it may change the whole layout of the show, though that seems impossible.
Also, how the panchayat selection takes place and its final result is important. Finally, whether any deep-rooted romance turns sour between Rinki and Abhishek is still a question, as the man is determined to leave the area soon but finds himself attracted to the woman.
