The Family Man review: Manoj Bajpayee terrific digital debut in a fantabulous espionage thriller

What: Manoj Bajpayee makes a terrific debut in Raj and D.K’s The Family Man – the espionage thriller that India wants.


OTT web series The Family Man Season 1 review

Amazon Prime Video


Sly, humorous, nail-biting, with a constant check on morality with a heartfelt touch of humanity, The Family Man is a captivating espionage thriller that excels with some outstanding performances.

Raj Nidimoru, Krishna D.K., Suman Kumar & Sumit Arora’s screenplay is tight and finely established. The 10-episode series does take some time to set the mood but that is perfectly organised with believable straight from life characters.

A perfect blend of entertainment and patriotism, The Family Man is also a character study of different individuals in similar/different situations and their reactions.

The characters are believable, the situations are inspired from actual events which make The Family Man relevant to the core.

Manoj Bajpayee in his digital web series debut gives an outstanding display of acting that is sheer brilliance.

Neeraj Madhav as Moosa Rahman is superb.

Sharib Hashmi is incredible as J.K. Talpade and his bonding with Srikant is a major highlight.
