He tries hard to balance his loved ones and job, which despite having taken over his own life, doesn’t pay well. His spouse, Suchitra, is a college professor and is oblivious of Srikant’s greater than eventful fieldwork. She’s tired of his erratic life and work. Aside from their trouble inviting teenaged daughter, Srikant and Suchi also have a music loving, but tone deaf son, who’s extremely vocal about particular problems and wishes that his father was, too.
The Family Man is about TASC using some of the very intelligent intelligence within the nation and state of the art technology to detect dangers to the nation. The action, at work, begins With Mujahideens being recorded by the shore Guard and he, together with JK, he is sent to interrogate them, accompanied by Zoya, the recruit. While Srikant, J.K., Zoya and the others are busy chasing guys, interrogating them, planting hidden cameras and joining forces to foil evil plans, Srikant attempts to dodge the bullets family life fires at him daily. One of those bullets comprises his spouse Suchi getting too close for comfort, to one of her co-workers, Arvind.
Srikant is even seen getting an earful for something his daughter does in college. While work and life are occurring to Srikant, unbeknownst to him, a devious plan is hatched to create tension in India and bring it to its knees. What follows is a series of episodes and round watch, surveillance to catch the suspect In the act and find out what the act threatening India’s security really is. The humorous part is that Shrikant’s observation extends to his members of the family too. WOw, MOment: Inspired by real life incidents that flooding papers nowadays, The Family Man weaves together Manoj Bajpayee’s lives – the mad non stop action stuffed one and another in which his loved ones is the boss.
It’s super relatable on several levels. There’s not any dull moment in the series. The children extorting their father instead of maintaining Their mouth closed is EPIC. At one point, you may also feel sorry for the guy. Mehak Thakur, who plays the role of Manoj Bajpayee’s daughter Dhriti, provides a great performance and is certainly someone to watch out for. The camaraderie between Srikant and JK excels through consistently, be it on the field or with things on the home front.
