Created by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, The Family Man is a spy thriller series with Manoj Bajpayee as the frontman. Season 2 of The Family Man stars Samantha Akkineni, Sharib Hashmi, Priyamani, Sharad Kelkar, Sunny Hinduja and more. Check the Family Man 2 Review below.
The Family Man season 2 picks up right where season 1 had left off. Manoj Bajpayee's Srikant Tiwari has left his spy days behind and is now working in an IT firm. He struggles to cope when things on the marriage and family front start to fall. Tiwari seeks refuge in the one job that can help him stand his ground. Season 2 brings higher stakes. A coup to assassinate the nation's Prime Minister at the command of a rebel soldier, Raji (Samantha Akkineni) is what Tiwari is up against. What happens when personal and professional lives intermingle? That is what The Family Man Season 2 speaks to.
Hats off to the casting department! Manoj Bajpayee brings back all his charismatic acting as always. Srikant's humour and a feeling of helplessness are flawlessly conveyed yet again. If you liked his performance in season 1, season 2 is just as good if not better. Samantha Akkineni, the un-type cast actor steals the show with her tough and witty performance as Raji. Samantha delivers great performances across the episodes, in-flight sequences and emotional scenes.
Great acting and character-building remain the best things about The Family Man. Season 2 also delivers in this aspect. Samantha's Raji is a perfectly written character. Each character has a sense of depth that takes the show to another level. The protection value of season 2 is much higher. Great sets, costumes and much more! Cinematography is also on point. The action scene remains a plus point for the show. The show-makers Raj and DK have made sure the storyline is tight even if it is not mind-blowing.
The buzz around the new season seems to have worked against it. While the overall storyline and make of the show is commendable, it is a let down in comparison to the expectations set. The story is very predictable at the end and the suspense value drops.
If you've seen the first season of The Family Man, go ahead and watch it. The cast, especially Manoj Bajpayee and Samantha Akkineni make it worth the watch. If you have not, The Family Man season 2 still makes a quick binge on a lazy weekend.
