The much-awaited web series, ‘The Family Man’ was finally released after making its fans wait for a very long time. After a successful first season, this second part was released on 3rd June, and its themes of patriotism, mid-life crises, family love, and political understanding make it much fresh to watch. The show is the brainchild of filmmakers Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K., mostly known as Raj & DK.

The Family Man has returned with a bang. It has a lot of action, humor, politics, and diverse human emotions as well. Just like the first season, this new one has some incredible actors playing major roles. Manoj Bajpayee, one of the most talented actors in the entertainment industry, has made his character stand out once again. This season stars other incredible actors like Samantha Akkineni, Sharib Hashmi, Priyamani, Seema Biswas, Sharad Kelkar, Darshan Kumar, Shreya Dhanwantary, Sunny Hinduja, and others. All the actors are getting appreciation from the audience.

With a detailed screenplay, clever humor, and several thrilling sequences, this second season has won the hearts of numerous people. In this season, after a successful yet emotionally breaking turn, Srikant takes voluntary retirement from TASC to spend time with his family. He takes up a regular 9-5 job at an IT firm and tries to manage his relationship with his family members. However, his life takes some odd turns, and he lands up in TASC again. Along with the ISIS from the last first season, the Tamil rebels are fighting for their agendas in the new story. Srikant’s character, which is played by Manoj Bajpayee, has a strange existential crisis, in which he is trying to balance his professional and personal lives, which makes it more intriguing.

In the show, several slight issues that we face in our daily lives stand out clearly, along with the blend of big topics like national security, secret operations, and strategic fights. Another part that touches the heart of its audience is that even after fighting with the most powerful forces outside and cheating the death a thousand times with his own dilemmas, the man has to live a life with his family. 


The show also confuses the thoughts of its audience about what is ‘good’ and what is ‘bad’ when it comes to national security and of course family. The existence of the one story in the series does not deny the other one, and it bids many odds to the audience to disagree with the heroes of the story.

From its first season, the show has always been aware of alternate realities about the misery, movements, and suppression in life, and that’s one of the reasons that this Indian show has engaged the audience for so long. However, the fans of the Family Man have waited for a very long time for its second season. It was delayed because its directors Raj and DK announced its postponement, which came after the reports that Amazon Prime Video was considering delaying the show’s release following some controversies related to its other shows. However, now The Family Man is similarly facing troubles with its portrayal of the Tamil community.

Several citizens are calling it racist and also calling for a ban on the series. Mr. Seeman, the founder of the Naam Tamilar Katchi NTK has also demanded a ban on the Family Man and recently he had also written to Amazon Prime Video - India’s head Aparna Purohit asking the OTT platform to stop the streaming of the series, which allegedly portrays some parts of the Tamil community as vicious and the Liberation Tiger for Tamil Eelam as terrorists. Directors Raj and DK had earlier issued a statement saying that some assumptions and impressions have been made based on just a couple of shots. The directors claim that they are aware of the sentiments of the Tamil people and Tamil culture and have nothing but the utmost respect towards the community.

The Family Man is facing backlash from people, but it has been garnering admiration as well. The second season is an incredible follow-up of the previous one, and by its end, it also gave a hint of possible next season which will revolve around the COVID-19 pandemic, and intrigue its audience with action, thriller, and some drama once again.
