TVF’s ‘Panchayat’ Season 3, ‘Hostel Daze’, is all set for remakes in the South

Be it TVF Pitchers, regular roommates, aspirants, Kota Factory, Hostel Daze or our much loved Panchayat, throughout both the seasons, TVF (The Viral Fever) is a top player in the entertainment space.

Interestingly, some of the most popular series/shows including Permanent Roommates, Hostel Daze and Panchayat’s Season 3 are all slated for remakes in the South.

TVF is currently working on the Tamil and Telugu remake of Panchayat, which will be the fourth remake after Permanent Roommates, Flames and Hostel Daze.

This speaks volumes about the content house that has released back-to-back popular series on various platforms.

One reason it has managed to break barriers with its all-ages content is because of its universal appeal.

By achieving this, they have set the bar high to tap into different markets and audiences with their original content.

Remakes have been a phenomenon in the global film industry for years.

The Indian film industry, one of the largest industries in the world, has been attracted to remakes since the beginning of the talkie era (1931) because of their ability to guarantee profits and high returns.

In addition, remakes offer a great opportunity for directors and producers to produce a well-known film in a different way.

Although attempts have been made to classify remakes of traditional Hollywood films by Druxman, Horton and McDougal, Forrest and Koos, Frow, Stern and Leitch, no attempts have been made to classify remakes in the Indian film industry, in which the cross-cultural influences over a pluralistic society like India provide a fertile research area to explore.

TVF’s success in coming up with original content that appeals to filmmakers from Tamil, Telugu and other film industries in the South speaks volumes and should also push the Hindi film industry to emphasize on original content and not just but to reuse originals, but to adapt and repackage them. already worked.

TVF’s recent productions like Panchayat that have found an audience across ages, classes and cultures is a lesson that, if Bollywood tries to learn, will give the film industry more hits than duds.
