spies are normal people
Now we all know how top Indian spy shows and movies have exaggerated the lead role as action hero. But The Family Man keeps his main character grounded.
You are a secret agent, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have ‘common man’ problems like money, family, traffic etc. The person wanders from rate to rate to secure a home loan. Shrikant Tiwari is just as we would imagine a real detective trying to save the country while dealing with family problems.
Is the ‘Bad Man’ Really a Bad Man?
“The Family Man” addresses real-world themes exactly the way things happen in the real world. Not everything is shown in black or white. Even the ‘bad guys’ have their reasons that are rooted in real life experiences and do what the situation makes them do. There are obvious gray areas on both sides and the show doesn’t shy away from addressing them.
Does good always win?
While we’ve been taught that goodness always triumphs, there are also times when we may encounter setbacks or failures. If you’ve seen the first season of the show, you know exactly what we’re talking about. The climax has proved that even though there are good and bad people, being on the right side of the story doesn’t guarantee you anything. Real agents often deal with mission failures, and “The Family Man” isn’t afraid to show it.
strong star cast
The writers of The Family Man haven’t been bogged down in attempting to polish off the lead characters. Instead, he worked on developing the secondary characters really well. JK, Moses, Saloni – all these characters are well written and strong characters, whatever their screen time.
There isn’t a single slow or hasty moment in The Family Man. The pacing of the show is one of its best features. We accompany Srikkanth on his mission to every nook and corner of India in the story and yet, it doesn’t seem like a hasty act at any point. Not many shows can manage such tight pacing.
