The teaser of Prem Modi's Panchlait has been released. The film is based on a story by Phanishwar Nath Renu, one of the pioneers of modern Hindi literature. Set in a small village in Bihar, the film brings back memories of the original story by aptly recreating the characters and the setting.

Starring Amitosh Nagpal, Anuradha Mukherjee, Rajesh Sharma, Ravi Jhankal and Brijendra Kala among others, the film brings forth several issues which are still faced by people of the lower rung of the economy. Shortage of electricity is the overarching issue which has been presented in a lighthearted manner. However, the teaser will leave you with more questions than answers.

The original story revolves around a village and its inhabitants who are so innocent and inexperienced that they do not know how to light a simple lamp. Their lack of knowledge leads to hilarious situations, something which has been projected in the teaser too. The makers have made sure to put across the conundrum of the villagers as much as possible which explains the frequent shots of villagers gathered around the lamp, examining it intently.

Panchlait is slated to release on 17 November.
