imminent

Review:

While
the
first
season
of

The
Family
Man

brought
a
perfect
balance
between
action
and
comedy,
the
makers
decided
to
bring
out
the
big
guns
with
season
two.
Created
by
Raj
Nidimoru
and
Krishna
DK,
the
series
maintains
its
magic
along
with
a
dose
of
reality.
However,
few
parts
of
the
show
are
hard
to
watch
and
loopholes
are
hard
to
get
by
when
the
rest
has
been
written
with
precision.

Instead
of
an
imminent
threat
on
a
city,
this
time
the
season
two
has
collided
domestic
disturbances
with
diplomatic
tension.
Srikant
Tiwari
(Manoj
Bajpayee)
who
has
returned
in
season
two,
is
struggling
to
assimilate
to
the
life
of
a
corporate
man
while
his
best
friend
JK
continues
on
with
dangerous
missions.
With
the
family
still
falling
apart,
Sri
finally
turns
to
the
one
thing
he
has
in
control
and
is
confident
of,
his
high
risk
profile
job.

Back
on
the
TASC
force,
Sri
made
it
very
clear
that
they
are
just
soldiers
protecting
the
position
of
the
leader
irrespective
of
the
one
sitting
on
the
chair,
or
the
government
in
charge.
In
another
scene,
the
makers
have
also
emphasised
that
a
group
of
rebels
can
turn
into
freedom
fighters
based
on
time
and
context,
making
it
clear
that
they
did
not
plan
on
labelling
any
organisation
or
community
as
traitorous.

As
much
as
the
makers
have
paid
attention
to
the
screenplay,
they
have
also
made
sure
to
back
every
bad
move
by
the
antagonists
with
emotional
backstory.
They
somewhat
also
succeed
in
making
you
feel
bad
for
the
so-called
terrorist,
who
end
up
becoming
pawns
in
someone
else’s
game.
At
the
centre
of
it
all
is
Raji
played
by
Samantha
Akkineni

an
indoctrinated
rebel
soldier
tasked
with
carrying
out
the
assassination
of
the
Prime
Minister.

Samantha
holds
her
own
in
every
scene
despite
the
distracting
thick
layer
of
brown
eyeshadow
on
her
face.
She
delivers
an
antagonist
that
is
ruthless
and
just
as
good
as
the
leading
man
of
the
show.
Other
than
the
two,
Sharib
Hashmi
(JK),
Ashlesha
Thakur
(Dhriti),
Abhay
Verma
(Salman)
also
established
a
strong
presence
on
screen
with
their
performances.

The Family Man 2 Controversy: Manoj Bajpayee Says Show's Major Cast & Crew Members Are TamiliansThe

Controversy:

Says

Major

Tamilians

With
season
two
the
makers
levelled
up
with
the
story’s
seriousness
but
managed
to
maintain
the
comic
aspects
with
continuity.
From
gigs
about
unable
to
drink
tea
to
rubbing
ointment
after
being
beaten
up,

The
Family
Man
2

had
much
needed
moments
of
relief.
But
the
best
part
throughout
season
two
are
the
single-take
set
pieces.
Raj
and
DK
are
behind
the
two
best
actions
scenes
in
the
show
that
take
you
in
the
middle
of
the
battle

the
jail-break
sequence
and
the
final
shootout
scene.

Overall,

The
Family
Man
2

maintains
the
best
part
of
the
show
and
levels
up
at
the
same
time.
The
Samantha
Akkineni
and
Manoj
Bajpayee-starrer
is
a
must-watch
of
the
season
especially
for
the
season
3
teaser
at
the
end.
