Amazon Prime Video to release drama-thriller ‘The Family Man’ on 20 Sep in multiple languages

MUMBAI: Amazon Prime Video will release drama-thriller and Amazon Original Series ‘The Family Man’ on 20th September in Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu, German, Japanese, French, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish, across 200 countries and territories.

Family Man marks the digital debut of Padma Shri awardee and National Award winner – Manoj Bajpayee and stars award-winning talent from pan India, including National Award winner Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi, Neeraj Madhav, Sharad Kelkar, Gul Panag, Sundeep Kishan, Darshan Kumaar, Sunny Hinduja, and Shreya Dhanwantary.

A drama-thriller, The Family Man follows the journey of Srikant Tiwari, a man 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.

Amazon Prime Video India Director, Content Vijay Subramaniam said, “With The Family Man, Amazon continues to bring distinctive and high-quality storytelling to our audiences, reinforcing our commitment to being a home for talent, both in front of and behind the camera. The Family Man is a fast-paced drama-thriller that redefines mainstream viewing by bringing high-caliber creators such as Raj & DK along with an all-star cast including Manoj Bajpayee, Priyamani, Neeraj Madhav, Gul Panag, among others. The show seamlessly couples drama, action, thrill and surprisingly wry humor in a highly binge-worthy 10 episodes. Serious geo-politics forms the backdrop of the drama-thriller, taking The Family Man across the country, as he attempts to serve the nation. Viewers will also get deep insights into very relatable struggles of a Family Man, who attempts to balance both work and family.”

Raj & DK, Producers of the Amazon Original, The Family Man, through their production company, D2R Films 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 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.”

The edgy drama thriller series has been created, produced and directed by Raj & DK (Stree, Go Goa Gone, Shor In The City) and marks the digital debut of two-time National Film Award-winning actor, Manoj Bajpayee, along with National Film Award recipient, Priyamani. The Amazon Original series includes talent from across the Indian film industry including Sharib Hashmi, Neeraj Madhav, Sharad Kelkar, Gul Panag, Sundeep Kishan, Darshan Kumaar, Sunny Hinduja, Shreya Dhanwantary and others.
