Directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K., the story revolves around Srikant Tiwari (Manoj Bajpayee who’s simply fantastic), who works as an intelligence officer for T.A.S.C (A fictitious branch of the National Investigation Agency). He works with passion and determination, barring his low salary and the risks involved in his work. His wife is Suchitra, (Priyamani) and he has two kids. His family does not know what his job is as he cannot disclose his designation and claims to his wife that his work is only “passing files”. He is a caring, affectionate husband and father who just doesn’t have the time to spend with his family. While his family urges him to quit his job, he somehow manages to cover up and continue working for the country.

Season 1, which released in July 2018 is gripping, realistic, suspenseful and also provides good comical relief when needed. After watching The Family Man, it instills the feeling of patriotism and deep reverence for those serving the nation. Without any surety or guarantee for their lives, our armed forces stay awake day and night, irrespective of climatic or health conditions, without proper nourishment so that we can sleep without any fear in our homes. The season however at certain areas, is left to the viewer’s perception. Overall, The Family Man is an intense, gripping, fast and engaging series. It is definitely the next in line for you all to binge watch. All episodes are available on Amazon Prime.
