Phulera, a small village with a big heart, made a special place in the lives of the audience as they enjoyed the first season of Prime Video series Panchayat’ directed by Deepak Kumar Mishra.


‘Panchayat’ is a simple slice-of-life story which portrayed the on-ground reality of rural India. With less than a week for ‘Panchayat’ Season 2 to release, director Deepak Kumar Mishra explained why he named it ‘Panchayat’.


Deepak Kumar Mishra said, “A panchayat in India is the personification of what village life is. I wanted to revive the viewers’ fondness for classic shows and relate that to reality. When we were kids, we grew up watching shows like ‘Malgudi Days‘ and ‘Panchatantra’. This had the essence of small village culture. We aimed to show the new-age generation what we grew up watching back in the day. ‘Panchayat’s name connects viewers to their motherlands.”
