Amazon Prime Video has just released the trailer and poster for its upcoming series, Panchayat. The series marks the second collaboration between Prime Video and The Viral Fever (TVF) after Hostel Daze and Kota Factory. The series will stream globally from 3 April.
The series stars Jitendra Kumar (Shubh Mangal Zyaada Savdhan) as the protagonist and Neena Gupta, Raghubir Yadav, and Biswapati Sarkar as the employees of a local panchayat office. The show captures the journey of an urban protagonist Abhishek Tripathi, who for lack of a better job option, joins as the secretary of a panchayat office in a remote village in Uttar Pradesh.
Stuck between ‘crazy’ characters, Abhishek, like a fish out of water, unwillingly starts his job but with the sole motivation of getting out of there as soon as possible. He even prepares for CAT.
“Panchayat is the unique and charming story of a young man struggling to adjust to his new life in a remote village,” actor Jitendra Kumar, who plays the lead, said. “I am so thrilled that I get to work with Neena Gupta once again!”
On her role, Neena Gupta said, “Playing the role of Manju Devi, a quirky matriarchal homemaker and official village Pradhan, was a huge amount of fun, especially alongside such a talented cast and crew. This is a series with plenty of heart. I know people are going to fall in love with the unique characters and authentic rural flavour.”
