The Family Man Trailer Review:
The Family Man trailer was released a few days ago to reveal the date of release of the original Amazon Prime series. Right now, with all the political unrest involving Kashmir and Pakistan, this series with its patriotism is exactly what our country needs. We need to be pumped up and fight for our country in whatever little way we can. It extends a hand of support to all those Indian soldiers ready to sacrifice their lives for us.
The story seems like a nice shift from the Unrealistic babble of romance and focuses on some realism. It focuses on one of the most important aspects of family life- a workaholic member and its effect on the dynamics of the said family. I think this has been depicted very well in the trailer and foreshadows a great show.
Instead of some old comedy, this show shows some level of seriousness and educative value. The cast selection has been done appropriately. Manoj Bajpayee has always been well suited for character roles and putting him in the lead is an absolute treat, adding some brownie points to the series.
The raw emotion depicted by the family is well suited to the storyline and adds a twist. Although the “Boring person with a boring day job who actually has a life-risking job” is an overplayed tactic, I can’t wait to watch what this one has in store for us. All in all, the trailer looks promising!
The Family Man Release Date:
The first season of The family man is to be released on the 20th of September 2019 on Amazon Prime Video. It is thus free for all the Amazon Prime members.
