Enthusiastic fans took to Twitter to share their reactions. Some thanked Amazon Prime while others shared screenshots of the first episode as they started the compulsive clock. Many fans also noted that Tamil and Telugu audios were not yet available for the show.
The show, created by Raj and DK, revolves around a middle-class family man who is also a world-class spy, Srikant Tiwari, played by Manoj Bajpayee. Actress Samantha Akkineni will also rehearse for a lead role in the new season, which also stars Sunny Hinduja, Priyamani, Sharad Kelkar, and Vedant Sinha.
Before it was released, Manoj Bajpayee thanked the entire cast and crew for their tireless work amid the pandemic despite their personal losses and suffering, and went to his Instagram to leave a warm message before the premiere.

The Family Man Season 2 Review & Storyline
A lot has changed since the first season of The Family Man, which was released just a week before the highly acclaimed Bard of Blood without much fuss or hype, but as the saying goes, the success has made so much noise that the anticipation on The Family Man Season 2 was at an all-time high.
It’s a tricky situation, but then there are excellent creators like DK and Raj and a Manoj Bajpayee who doesn’t look like the secret agents we’re used to, but just who we need.
The canvas is bigger and the action more elegant. Villains mean business and heroes block their way. In the meantime, the audience gets what they have always wanted: sharp banter, exuberant conversation and a healthy dose of patriotism.
Srikant Tiwari (Manoj Bajpayee) returns from his company job to lead a dangerous mission in Chennai. His domestic affairs with his wife Suchi (Priyamani) and their children are in danger anyway, and his opponents decide to add a touch of his hostility.
This time he faces a group of Sri Lankan Tamil rebels, led by a deadly Raji (Samantha Akkineni). Aside from ideologies, this is also a war of mind and courage.
It’s all in the note that makes The Family Man 2 a bizarre, fast-paced yet highly emotional drama. The educational system, mental health attitudes, and language segregation are sharply ridiculed. For example, Tiwari is really at a loss when he is bombed by a teenage school girl in terms like femininazi and libertarian, he’s just a Bajpayee-caliber actor who could have brought humor into even the strangest of situations, then there’s a former intelligence officer who prefers to be reserved, his penchant for it, after a brief chat to burn through without a trace. It’s hilarious.
And without forgetting the jokes from Tiwari and JK (Sharib Hashmi). It’s a great couple to work together. You can laugh at will.
Now for the big inclusion in The Family Man season 2: Samanthas Raji. The creators have presented her need for affection and recognition in a subtle way, without shoving clichéd information down our throats, as most Bollywood projects do with extremists.
She handled her part very carefully. With a performance measured in this way, Samantha should win many more fans in Indian show business.
Its comic book sequences are spot on before the fifth episode gets serious. Likewise, the action part takes center stage in later episodes and contributes to an appropriate ending.
The characters we met in The Family Man Season One are trying to find a balance in the risky world of Tiwari. They also mature and experience natural progress when they accept the truths about their lives.
Back to Manoj Bajpayee, it’s his show. An actor par excellence who always pushes his limits. He is the character of his life. It’s hard to imagine another contemporary actor going through so many moods in such a short period of time.
The Family Man 2 on Amazon Prime Video is detailed, fun, exciting, and seamless. You don’t have to watch the time as you go through the nine episodes. Plus, watch each episode through to the credits for a great selection of background music.
