At a time when movies with male-dominated characters in Bollywood are dominated by Panchayat, Mirzapur, Hyegulkaah, the earthy smell of the village seems to be spreading in some of the audience’s favorite OTT web series. It has also been appreciated by the audience, which is why its sequels are being made. Be it Panchayat, Mirzapur, Hygulkah or Ashram. Their dialogues were also in the language of the people. These days, in a reality-related web series, the village women are seen as domestic women, wrapped in cotton sari, with pallu on their heads. Such a woman, listening to her husband, calls him a hohan and calls the bank a litter. Not only this, she also uses abuse in the tone of the people. In general, the trend of the OTT village series is increasing.

Reason for doing the Panchayat web series
According to Panchayat Director Deepak Kumar Mishra, somewhere we wanted to connect with people’s hearts. People who love the town like us. Personally, I am from the town itself. I grew up watching series like Malgudi Days and Bysemkesh Bakshi. When I arrived in Mumbai and joined the cinema, somewhere in my mind I had a wish that just as we have enjoyed series made in the context of a village like Malgudi Days, in the same way today’s generation will also feel the old taste. after seeing our series with which we have lived our childhood. We wanted to somehow bring it to the audience through us. It was with this wish that we made Panchaye and I am glad that all sections of the audience liked it. For this reason, Panchayats are also being formed.
Movie people love the town.
The film industry is a place where everyone is welcome. Here there is no caste discrimination or rich and poor. Whoever has the ability, that person can make a place for themselves in the film industry. Whether from town, city or any town. Everyone is welcome here. There are many actors in the film industry who left their village land and came to Mumbai to become actors and became actors after many years of struggle. Like Manoj Bajpai, Rajpal Yadav, Pankaj Tripathi, Raghuveer Yadav, Nawazuddin Siddiqui are artists who love the origin of their people. They are popular and have not forgotten their village despite leading a modern life.
According to Pankaj Tripathi, whenever he works on a web series based on the village, he reminisces about the days he spent in his village. Similarly, says Raghuveer Yadav, our childhood was spent in the village. There was a potato vendor who sold potatoes in the town. His style of selling papads was strange. I learned a lot from that too and used to imitate selling papads in different ways just like that.
Just like Pankaj Tripathi, Raghuveer Yadav, Manoj Bajpayee has also not forgotten his people despite being one of the best actors in Mumbai. According to Manoj Bajpayee, whenever he makes a web series or movie based on a village, he likes it very much. It seems as if childhood memories are fresh once again. According to Manoj Bajpai, he also likes the village because there are no pretenses there. Be it love or abuse, it all happens in the face.
