The makers of Manoj Bajpayee's upcoming thriller web series The Family Man released the trailer on Thursday. The series which will be premiered on Amazon Prime Originals is an edgy story of Srikant Tiwari who is ‘a middle-class guy but a world-class spy’. The Family Man marks the debut of Manoj on the digital entertainment platform. The trailer of this highly exciting and thrilling web series gave in a glimpse into what can be expected from the show and oh darling, it is simply captivating.
The Family Man trailer opens to Srikant as a sober and less courageous man who is a father of two. Soon, we get to know the real face behind him as we are introduced to a different side of him, a world-class spy. Now, what follows is the journey of Srikant who tries to strike a balance between the responsibilities of his family while working for a highly secretive special cell of the National Intelligence Agency, attempting to spot and prevent large-scale terror attacks on the country and its citizens.
Created by dynamic duo Raj and DK (Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK), The Family Man is set to release on September 20, 2019, on Amazon Prime Video. The series stars Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi, Neeraj Madhav, Sharad Kelkar, Gul Panag, Sundeep Kishan, Darshan Kumaar, Sunny Hinduja, and Shreya Dhanwantary with Manoj.
Speaking about The Family Man, Raj and DK said, “We have been wanting to get into long-form storytelling, and were waiting for the right platform. And we found an amazing partner in Amazon Prime! It has truly been a wonderful journey, the start of a new and exciting inning, creating our first show. 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.”
