The Family Man 2 Review
Cast: Manoj Bajpayee, Samantha Akkineni, Sharib Hashmi, Priyamani
Creators: Raj and DK
A lot has changed since the first season of The Family Man, which released without much fanfare and hype, just a week before the highly advertised Bard of Blood. But as the saying goes, its success made so much noise that the anticipation around the second season was at an all-time high. It’s a tricky situation to be in but then you have excellent creators like Raj and DK, and a Manoj Bajpayee who looks nothing like the secret agents we are used to but exactly like the one we need.
The canvas is bigger and the action sleeker. The villains mean business and the heroes block their ways. In between, the audience gets what they always wanted—sharp jokes, unhinged entertainment and a heavy dose of patriotism.
Srikant Tiwari (Manoj Bajpayee) returns from his corporate job to head a dangerous mission in Chennai. His domestic matters with wife Suchi (Priyamani) and kids are anyway in a jeopardy, and on top of it, his adversaries decide to give their animosity a personal touch. This time, he is confronted by a group of Sri Lankan Tamil rebels headed by a super deadly Raji (Samantha Akkineni). Apart from ideologies, this is also a war of wit and grit.
