The Family Man 2
After trying to save Delhi from a gas attack, Srikant (Manoj Bajpayee) has had it. He's hung up his boots at TASC and, in a bid to give more time to his family, has shifted to an IT company. Routine stuff, nothing adventurous, but he's dedicating his time to cooking dinner, trying to make things work with his wife Suchi (Priya Mani) etc. His TASC updates keep coming in though, thanks to JK (Sharib Hashmi) who also keeps telling Srikant to come back to the force. Srikant pretends to be happy with what he's doing, but we all know that's not true.
While he prepares his weekly reports on his desk, TASC is assigned the task of rounding up Subbu, one of the key persons of the Lankan Government in Exile, and the younger brother of that govt's Prime Minister Bhaskaran. What starts as a simple mission goes horribly wrong. In the meantime, Srikant's frustration at trying to do the right thing but not succeeding, reaches its peak. So, we know that at some point he's bound to return to TASC. How else will the story proceed? And he does. Nobody loves spoilers, so let's just say that the rest is a high-octane chase to stop a rebel plan that's a big threat to India's national security.
Brilliant Scenes, beautiful Coordination:
While the show is filled with brilliant scenes, two of these stand out for the beautiful coordination and choreography- the one around the police station and the climax. Both are long scenes with no or minimal cuts and here, you don't follow the characters, but are with them in the action.
It also stars Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi, Seema Biswas, Darshan Kumar, Sharad Kelkar, Sunny Hinduja, Shreya Dhanwantary, Shahab Ali, Vedant Sinha, Mahek Thakur, Mime Gopi, Ravindra Vijay, Devadarshini Chetan, Anandsami and N. Alagamperumal.
Samantha Akkineni makes her digital debut
The second season marks the digital debut of popular south Indian actor Samantha Akkineni. Though her appearance in the trailer has generated some controversy, the makers stood by her and said that she "took an extreme risk to do this role."
The first season of The Family Man was a huge hit thanks to the fun element it brought into the otherwise thrilling and patriotic spy genre. The second season lives up to the expectations too.
