What: The much-awaited season 2 of the terrific amazon Prime Video’s The Family Man Season 1 (premiered on 20 September 2019) by Raj & D.K. starring the incredible Manoj Bajpayee is a promise delivered in a blockbuster manner.
Life, death, morality, family, nation, happiness, right, wrong, guilt, anger, and the price of all a human and the humankind has to pay.
The Family Man season 1 was an enjoyable Indian espionage web series that smartly twined the family crises (responsibilities) of the protagonist Shrikant Tiwari (Manoj Bajpayee) as a father, husband with his duties as a Senior Agent and Analyst in T.A.S.C towards his organisation and the nation.
Dark humour, comment on relationships, the education system, the right to kill an individual in the name of ‘mission’, patriotisms and the importance of human values amidst this decaying system and putrid politics all around.
Raj Nidimoru, Krishna D.K. and Suparn Varma in the second season add some beautiful human touches to this espionage action drama that appeals to the pan India audience.
Have you ever been to Kashmir?" asks Sajid to Raji while driving to the Southern coast of Tamil Nadu. She says no and then shares "Kashmir is beautiful. I've heard even Sri Lanka is very beautiful?"
This ‘similarity’ between the two deadly most wanted terrorist and their admiration for ‘beauty’, the conversation which seems ‘normal’ for people around the globe, turns out to be a striking example of how the evil, the extremist mindset has brainwashed the good human from every human. What appears as a deadly merciless beast can be human and what seems to be a good-natured human can show horrifying evil menace.
Unpredictable, edgy and thoroughly engrossing yarn that adds more life and longevity to the already famous Indian espionage series.
The combat scenes are superbly shot. The jail sequence and the climax.
The emotional touches are the highlight – the brotherhood between Shrikant and JK.
The Milind (Sunny Hinduja) episode.
The Family Man Season 2 is a complete winner.
Manoj Bajpayee as Srikant is a display of marvellous acting skills with elan. He is excellent.
Samantha Akkineni as Raji is a killer. She nails it with a superb display of intensity wrapped in spontaneity and her silence is pure gold. A great super villain.
Priyamani as Suchitra Iyer Tiwari is brilliant.
Sharib Hashmi as JK Talpade is back and he is endearing right from the word go. Superb.
Sunny Hinduja again wins your heart after Aspirants
The kids Ashlesha Thakur and Vedant Sinha are fantastic.
Shahab Ali is very effective. Seema Biswas as PM Basu is fabulous.
Special mention for Vipin Sharma as Sambit, Ravindra Vijay as Muthu, Abhay Verma as Kalyan, Mime Gopi as Bhaskaran, Srikrishna Dayal as Subbu, is a must.
Good support comes from Shreya Dhanwanthary, Dalip Tahil, Darshan Kumaar, Punit, Pawan Chopra, Krishna D.K., Zarin Shihab, Devadarshini Chetan, Udhayabanu Maheshwaran, Kaustubh Kumar, Suresh Vishwakarma, Sohaila Kapur, Patrali Chattopdhyay and Krishna D.K. as Nikhil.
Finally, Asif Basra as the councillor makes us pray again for the departed soul who piously portrayed his characters on screen with his unique nuance.
The Family Man Season 2 is a brilliantly mounted, amazingly acted, solid espionage action drama that is going to win lots of accolades, another feather in the cap of Prime, Raj & D.K. Manoj Bajpayee and Samantha
