Review of the film “Family Man 2”


Manoj Bajpayee and Samantha Akkineni are amazing in season 2. Family man– admires Namrata Thakker.

Long awaited second season Family man is finally streaming on Amazon Prime Video and you should definitely check it out this weekend.

The new season has more humor, more action, lots of interesting characters and high performance.

Kudos to showrunners Raj & DK for not only scaling up in season 2 but living up to expectations.

The story picks up a year later from where the first season left off.

Srikanth Tiwari (Manoj Bajpayee) has retired from TASC and now works for an IT firm.

Although he does his best to make his family happy, his marriage to Suchi (Priyamani) falls apart. They even try to advise, but nothing helps.

On the other hand, Shrikant misses his old job.

When he learns that his friend J.K. Talpade (Sharib Hashmi) is stuck hostage in Chennai, Srikanth comes to the rescue.

Since his family life is not exactly happy before you know it, Tiwari is back working in the TASC squad.

In the second episode, we are introduced to Raji (Samantha Akkineni).

She is a Tamil rebel from Sri Lanka who works for Bhaskaran, the leader of the Tamil rebels.

Bhaskaran goes rogue and decides to attack the Prime Minister of India after his brother dies in the custody of Indian agents.

Together with Pakistan Major Sameer (Darshan Kumar), Bhaskaran comes up with a plan and Raji is the most important asset in this mission.

What happens next, and whether Shrikant manages to avert another catastrophe, makes up the rest of the story.

The second season takes place simultaneously in Mumbai, Chennai and London.

Many storylines are explained through flashbacks, which means you can’t blink and skip even a scene or the story will get confused.

In addition, many of the characters speak understandably in Tamil, for which English subtitles are provided. If you don’t like watching shows with subtitles, it can be annoying, but hang on because it’s worth it.

Manoj Bajpayee handles his scenes with ease, especially the comic ones. His on-screen partnership with Sharib Hashmi is endearing. Together they cause a riot and give us enough laughs throughout the series.

Apart from Manoj and Sharib, Samantha Akkineni steals the show. Like Raji, she is agile, fierce and cold-blooded.

In one of the scenes, she cuts a man with her bare hands, and yet you sympathize with her. That’s how well the characters are written.

While she doesn’t have many scenes with Bajpayee, every time they share screen space it’s a visual treat.

As an antagonist, Samantha gives a formidable fight to Shrikant Bajpayee. She is incredible in her action scenes and while her brown make-up is very distracting, Sam makes up for it with her acting skills.

Priyamani, Ravindra Vijay, Devadarshini, Abhay Verma and the rest of the supporting cast also did a good job.

Seema Biswas, who plays Prime Minister Basu, initially has a Bengali accent, but later in the series it disappears, which is weird.

Except for these minor hiccups, Family Man 2 this is a must watch.

It has amazing actors and a smoothly executed storyline with beautiful visuals and amazing action.

Raj & DK and director Suparn Verma really gave us a show up to Hollywood standards.

The second season ends with a cliffhanger, promising us that the makers will be back soon with new drama, high-octane action, and tons of humor.
