The Family Man is undoubtedly one of the best web shows made in India. Starring Manoj Bajpayee in the lead role, the first season of this web series was premiered way back in 2019. It was a smash hit among both critics and audiences. Since the end of the first season finale, fans were eagerly waiting for season 2. Finally, the long wait is over as the much-awaited season 2 has premiered today on Amazon Prime Video.
The Family Man Season 2 was supposed to get released in February this year. But the makers pushed its release due to some internal reasons. Recently, they have announced the release date as June 4th and also released the trailer of it. The trailer got a terrific response from the audience. However, a section of Tamil people opposed its release stating that the show portrayed Tamilians in a bad light. The makers have claimed that they did not defame Tamilians in the show and requested the protestors to watch the series and decide.
The Family Man features Manoj Bajpayee in the role of Shrikant Tiwari, a middle-class person who secretly works as a spy. Priyamani played the role of his wife in this series. Samantha Akkineni entered the universe of The Family Man by acting as the principal antagonist in this new season. The series is directed by Telugu-born director duo Raj and DK.
Ahead of its release, Raj and DK shared an emotional note on Twitter. They wrote, “So the day is finally here…Every filmmaker has a tale to tell at the end of every project about its highs and lows. For us, The Family Man Season 2 has proved to be our most challenging project yet. These are difficult times for all of us. There isn’t anyone amongst us untouched by loss and suffering. While we mourn the tragic loss of lives, we are grateful for the heroic actions and courage of the frontline workers and everyone working tirelessly to provide aid. For us, staying positive and optimistic has possibly been the hardest. The only thing that has kept us going through all of it is the constant love and appreciation (and the constant pressure) that we have received from all of you.”
“Having worked through a pandemic and two lockdowns, we are forever indebted to our fabulous cast, crew, and the Prime Video team who have persevered through it all. And one thing is overwhelmingly clear The Family Man now belongs to you, the audience, and all its fans. We remain forever humbled by all the love we have received,” they further added.
