The Family Man Web Review: Critics Review, Rating, Cast and Crew

The idea of a dull white-collar office-goer moonlighting as an undercover agent is not new. Arnold Schwarzenegger did it in James Cameron's "True Lies" 25 years ago. Now it is Manoj Bajpai's turn in a 10-part series that is as irresistible as streetside gol gappas. I couldn't stop binging until it was all done.

The directorial duo of Raj and Dk has a reputation of doing the unexpected, whether is India's first zombie film ("Go Goa Gone") or the gamechanging comic chudail film "Stree", which the duo wrote to super-success. In "The Family Man" they are on firmer ground. The material is strong and constantly interesting. Issues such as mob-lynching and anti-beef attacks or covert operations overreacting to terror threats, are raised organically in the plot as Srikant (Bajpai) grapples with home and terror (and sometimes terror at home) issues to the best of his abilities.

To be honest, Srikant's best is plainly inept.
