Highlights
  • A total of 10 episodes in The Family Man season 1

Manoj Bajpayee's first series role is here. The Family Man — Amazon Prime Video's newest original series from India — is now streaming. The socio-political action thriller series is about a government agent called Srikant Tiwari (Bajpayee), who struggles to balance the secrecy of his counter-terrorism job with the demands of his personal life that includes his family: a wife in Suchitra Tiwari (Priyamani) and two kids. Created, co-written, directed, and produced by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. — better known as Raj and D.K., the duo behind films such as Go Goa Gone — The Family Man has been heavily inspired by real events, including the Islamic radicalisation of south Indian youth, and the logistical and financial constraints and restrictions faced by India's intelligence agencies.
