Amazon Prime Video confirms release date for Jitendra Kumar’s ‘Panchayat 2’

The much-awaited sequel of the popular web series, ‘Panchayat’ (2020), is all set to stream on Amazon Prime Video from 20th May.

Directed by Deepak Kumar Mishra, the new season, starring Jitendra Kumar, Raghubir Yadav and Neena Gupta, will follow the journey of Abhishek Kumar, the engineering graduate who joins as secretary of a panchayat office in Phulera, reports The Indian Express.

Taking off from the successful first season, this will now delve deeper into the dynamics between the characters of Abhishek, Manju Devi and Pradhan Pati.

The release date was confirmed with Prime Video saying on social media, “intezaar hua khatam kyunki panchayat jald hogi aarambh! 🎬 #PanchayatOnPrime, new season May 20”.

‘Panchayat’ launched in April two years ago and received a positive response. One review by Ektaa Malik said, “Panchayat incisively breaks the dual-tone presentation of the Indian small town in mainstream narratives. We are not treated to the lush fields and everyone singing and dancing – a nod to Yashraj/DDLJ — nor are we treated to a Gangs of Wassyepur throwback, where everyone has a weapon slinging from their backs. Here there is a rifle, but its usage is highly incidental. There is some rivalry, but again, its sole purpose is comic relief.”
