The show chronicles the struggles of a middle-class family man caught between the duties for his nation and his family. It follows the journey of Srikant Tiwari, a middle-class man working for a government intelligence agency while trying his hardest to balance his family and professional life. How will ‘The Family Man’ manage to keep his family happy while living a double life as the nation’s undercover hero?
The brilliant series as been created, produced and directed by Indian American director duo Raj & DK who have previously helmed path-breaking films like Stree, Go Goa Gone, Shor In the City. It also stars Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi, Neeraj Madhav, Sharad Kelkar, Gul Panag, Sundeep Kishan, Darshan Kumaar, Sunny Hinduja, and Shreya Dhanwantary.
Talking about the show Raj and Dk said earlier, “With The Family Man, we tried a new genre and an approach both challenging and satisfying. We tried our take on geo-politics, blended it into an action-y thriller and added doses of quirky humour that is usually not associated with a serious genre like this. Loosely inspired by present-day events, it is a grounded take on the life of a middle-class guy who is also tasked with the job of fighting terrorism. The Family Man is an ode to the common man – his hopes, aspirations, responsibilities and troubles. In this case, he’s also pretty screwed – balancing family and saving the country.”
Here is something cool in a first of its kind for any Indian show, keeping in mind, the element of “global appeal” that the show carries, the makers of the show have also decided to dub it in English with the original cast dubbing their respective lines. This is a first for an Amazon Prime Video Indian Original having previously churned out critically acclaimed shows such as Mirzapur, Made in Heaven and Inside Edge.
The Family Man is set to release in over 200 countries and territories and will be available in a number of languages besides Hindi and English including German, Japanese, French, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish as well as several other Indian languages.
