Family Man Season 2 Trailer
PLOT of the Family Man Season 2 without spoilers
To meet up the family’s expectations and stay away from the TASC, SRIKANT TIWARI (Manoj Bajpayee) is now working in a 9 to 5 job in an IT firm. However, he struggles to balance his married life and new IT culture and a self-obnoxious Boss.
Meanwhile, PM BASU – ( Seema Biswas ) wants to ally with the SRI LANKAN government to demolish the plan of CHINA to control the INDIAN OCEAN through funds and ports in Sri Lanka.
Whereas in return, the Sri Lankan government wants “SUBBU,” a Sri Lankan TAMIL rebellion. But ISI planted the incident to entice terror in India and killed him. As planned, the incident rubbed the Tamil independence army on the wrong side, and they now plan to kill the PM.
On the other hand, Srikant’s heart is still in TASC and, as the incidents evolve, both at home and office- joins TASC again. Thus, the whole season revolves around how SRIKANT and the team join forces in Chennai to save the Prime Minister and the motherland.
Full Marks to each and every actor in season 2. It is pretty rare to say that everyone was outstanding in playing their part in the show, and Family Man is one exception.
Manoj Bajpayee is excellent in showing the conflict of a person dealing on multiple fronts like job, family, terror etc. Sometimes you even relate with him when he expresses his dissatisfaction with the job he is into.
Sharib Hashmi is again lit in the role of “Talpad”‘ -Srikant’s friend and colleague. He is someone who can make you smile in one frame and can even make you realize the depth of a serious situation.
Priyamani ( SUCHI ) portrays the character of a wife dealing with the guilt from the past with her colleague ARVIND (Sharad Kelkar) quite naturally. And indeed, she wins frame by frame when she is a mother.
Sharad Kelkar had a tiny part in the script and had nothing much to do.
From season 1 of Family Man to Chacha Vidhayak hain Hamare season 2 and now Family man Season 2, Sunny Hinduja ( Milind ) has grown as a tremendous actor.
And yes, finally, Samantha Akkineni- How can you not be her fan after watching this series. She is on fire in each and every scene.
She plays the pivotal character” “RAJI,” a Tamil rebel who can go to any extent to serve for the freedom of Sri Lankan Tamils and who were oppressed by the Sri Lankan ruling clan while demanding an independent state. The pain of suffering physical assaults, losing family friends and witnessing the massacre of thousands of her people.
From emotions to anger, she surpasses her performance as the episodes progress. She definitely proves that she is not just limited to being eye candy in any commercial masala movie but can also play intense and fierce roles like this one.
Her action sequences look so natural that you are convinced of her being an assassin, and I bet you will forget her glam image completely.
The director duo Krishna DK and Raj Nidimoru have hit the bull’s eye once again. The direction is entirely focused, and not even a single frame seems to deviate from the storyline.
How to Watch Family Man Season 2
Both the seasons of Family Man can be streamed online through Amazon Prime.
Family Man Season 2 Review
Family Man season 2 is a lot longer, comprising 9 episodes, but boy o boy, I must admit that I loved each and every second of the series. There are so many issues combined so beautifully in this season that could have been covered in separate seasons and used to make profits. Kudos to the writers and directors.
The series walks on a line narrating the story of Sri Lankan Tamils fighting for an independent state, a place which they call motherland. So, the recent confusion and uproar against the series projecting Sri Lankan Tamils in a bad light are not at all correct.
Makers have touched the topic but with a twist of ISI involvement, making it diverse on the political front.
As the series starts, you are confused if you switched on Tamil language instead of Hindi, but slowly you absorb the originality which makers brought to the table with this move.
The makers are even able to come up with flying colors, projecting balance between Hindi speaking and non-Hindi-speaking population and how they work hand in hand to serve the nation.
Family Man season 2 reminded me of Iron-Lady – P.M. “Indira Gandhi“‘, with a different build-up and somewhat relatable scenarios. And not just her, I even feel the character has been carved keeping in mind the Bengal CM- Mamata Banerjee too. Maybe I am wrong, but I felt it every time the character ”PM BASU” emerges on the screen.
But again, it justified the story and never rubbed anyone’s sentiments in a wrong way.
Family Man Season 2 packs a ton of family drama as well. Now the kids are a little grown up and getting much wiser. However, Atharv ( Vedant Sinha ) still has childish innocence but has a caring side for anyone who is hurt in the family emotionally.
Whereas Dhriti ( Ashlesha Thakur ) is in her teenage years, with conflicts in her emotions. She juggled between feeling like a grown-up and treated as a child.

Family Man Season 2 is not just an action-packed thriller series but has equal shares of emotions and relatable humor. Honestly speaking, I don’t remember watching such a balanced show ( No, I am not paid to praise the makers in this Family Man Season 2 Review ).
From acting to storyline, everything seems perfect. Even the background sound supports the progression of the storyline. The episodes keep you glued to the screen, and you are bound to watch one after the other episodes in the loop.
I will have to watch it again to find some flaws in the story, acting or direction ( exceptions being the foul language ). This itself tells why the series is so great.
This is undoubtedly a must-watch show. It is a well-deserved season 2 for the Family Man season 1, and if I say it surpasses the expectations in abundance, that won’t be wrong. One should not miss it at all.
