Panchayat Season 3 Review

One word review of Panchayat season 3 would be ‘pyaari’. Panchayat is back with Season 3, and the TVF team has truly outdone themselves once again. The second season, featuring Jitendra Kumar, Faisal Malik, Raghubir Yadav, Neena Gupta, and Chandan Roy, elevated the narrative by delving deeper into emotions, friendships, and love. This beloved series continues to take viewers through the picturesque locales of Phulera, allowing us, like Sachivji, to witness the essence of real India.

Season 3 picks up right where the second season left off. From Pradhan’s quirky gesture of gifting laukis to Abhishek, to the Fantastic Four sharing a pint of beer under the night sky, the new season brings back all the raw and heartfelt moments we cherish. This time, viewers will feel Prahlad’s sorrow and loneliness as he grapples with the grief of losing his martyr son, Rahul. Tensions rise when Pradhanji and Vidhayakji come face to face, leading to not only some hilarious situations but also intense confrontations. Panchayat Season 3 promises to deliver a blend of humor, warmth, and poignant moments, making it a must-watch continuation of this endearing series.


A comedy-drama that captures the journey of an engineering graduate Abhishek Tripathi, who for lack of a better job option joins as the secretary of a Panchayat office in a remote village of Uttar Pradesh. With a low salary and a mediocre life, Abhishek aims for a better life and higher salary by focusing on his higher studies. Along with learning about the real India, he finds friends and family in Pradhan, Prahlad and Vikas. Amidst little humour and friendship, Abhishek battles with governmental issues and politics and even a war this time.

What’s good about the series

Writer Chandan Kumar delves deeper into the political landscape of Phulera in Season 3 of “Panchayat.” While politics has always been a backdrop in the village, this season, viewers will witness a more intense political clash. Unlike the previous seasons, the political narrative here is crisp and cohesive, avoiding any sense of being dragged out or overly dramatic. Chandan deftly captures the various facets of village politics, from divisions within the community to the transformation of neighbors into adversaries.

Chandan masterfully portrays the consequences of ego clashes and the fallout when pride and respect are threatened. Each episode heightens curiosity, keeping the audience engaged and invested. Amidst the political turmoil, he also weaves in doses of romance between Abhishek and Rinki. Their budding relationship is depicted with subtlety and charm, allowing it to blossom more fully in Season 3 compared to the previous seasons. Expect fewer frowns and more smiles and blushes from Abhishek as their love story unfolds.

Character sketches:

The characters in “Panchayat” are so real, unfiltered, and genuine that you instantly connect with each one of them. Prahlad’s unwavering loyalty, Pradhanji’s big heart, Vikas’ innocence, and Manju Devi’s sassiness all resonate deeply with the audience. These details make the characters relatable and endearing on different levels, earning the writer, Chandan Kumar, a well-deserved round of applause for his craftsmanship. Every element, down to the smallest details like a lauki, a kathal, or a chair, contributes meaningfully to the story. Almost becoming characters in their own right. This attention to detail enriches the narrative, adding depth and authenticity to the world of Phulera.

Climax: Like the previous season, the makers of “Panchayat” Season 3 conclude the series on a high note. The epic face-off between Pradhanji and Vidhayakji is both entertaining and engaging, showcasing brilliant writing and execution. This finale doesn’t necessarily provide closure but ensures 100% satisfaction for the viewers, leaving them eager for more. The well-crafted climax perfectly balances drama and tension, making it a memorable and fitting end to the season.

What’s not

While the story and characters of “Panchayat” Season 3 are nuanced and endearing, the season lacks hard-hitting moments that leave a lasting impression. Unlike the first season, where Sachivji builds meaningful relationships with his colleagues, and the second season, which focuses on his efforts to help villagers with their toilets, the third season doesn’t offer similarly impactful scenes. The third season excels in exploring political dynamics and character development. But it falls short of delivering the kind of memorable, transformative moments that defined the previous seasons. Despite this, the engaging narrative and charming characters still make it an enjoyable watch.


Jitendra Kumar, who plays Abhishek Tripathi aka Sachivji, showcases his romantic side in “Panchayat” Season 3, while his portrayal of the angry young man is phenomenal. This time, Abhishek acts with more maturity, handling situations with a composed demeanour rather than frowning. Faisal Malik as Prahlad delivers a heart-touching performance, grieving for his lost son. His portrayal of a more rational and practical Prahlad is refreshing and adds depth to the character.

Raghubir Yadav as Pradhanji is a natural. His distinctive sounds—’hatt,’ ‘huh,’ ‘dhat’—being so heartwarming and authentic that it’s hard to dislike the character. Raghubir truly stands out as the rockstar of “Panchayat.” Sanvikaa, as Rinki, brings a spunky energy to Abhishek’s life, acting as a breath of fresh air and pushing the story forward. Durgesh Kumar, as Bhushan, adds significant value and weight to his character. His convincing accent and villainous role make him a character viewers love to dislike.

Neena Gupta as Manju Devi brings resilience and strength to her character. Beyond her sassy demeanour, she proves to be a true Pradhan, not just a housewife. Neena beautifully portrays her role, adding substantial value to the character. If you hate Pankaj Jha‘s character, it’s because he nailed it. His cruelty is convincingly portrayed, making viewers loathe him, a testament to his acting prowess. Chandan Roy as Vikas appears more mysterious in the third season. His innocence, infectious smile, and loyalty to friends are endearing. But his other side raises suspicion, adding a layer of intrigue.


Directed by Dipak Kumar Mishra and written by Chandan Kumar, “Panchayat” Season 3 takes viewers on an engaging journey with the perfect blend of drama and emotions. The commendable performances and exceptional writing keep the audience hooked throughout. The series promises a captivating mix of political intrigue and heartfelt moments, making it an enthralling watch from start to finish. The makers yet again succeeded in creating a series that not only entertains but also resonates on a personal level. Thus, capturing the essence of rural India in a beautifully authentic way. Moreover, it will make your wait harder for season 4 as it ends on a cliffhanger note.
