The Family Man Season 1 is an Amazon Prime exclusive series that premiered in September 2019. Post its announcement in 2018, Family Man Season 1 was filmed extensively across several locations in India. This includes Mumbai, Delhi, Kerala, Jammu, and Kashmir along with Ladakh. Family Man Season 1 stars Manoj Bajpayee in the lead role. We also have Neeraj Madhav and Priyamani.
While the series is certainly a great thriller to entertain you, the plot does lack in certain parts. While the acting more than makes up for these loopholes, they can be quite glaring at certain parts of the first season. Family Man Season 2 has also been released. However, if you’re yet to catch up on Family Man Season 1, we have it all for you. Be warned of serious spoilers ahead!
The main story in Family Man Season 1 follows the life of Srikant Tiwari and his adventures as a security personal. Tiwari works for the Threat Analysis and Surveillance Cell. It is an extension of India’s National Intelligence Agency. He is a ‘family man’ with a wife and two kids. The show is said to be inspired by real-life newspaper articles. Srikant helps the country deal with a potential terrorist attack. In the meanwhile, we also see problems that arise in his otherwise sorted home life due to his work.
Family Man Season 1 Plot Summary
The first season starts with a group of terrorists being caught off the coast of the Arabian Sea. In the meanwhile, a bomb is planted in a scooter at Kaala Goda which explodes. Thereby, the pressure to find the bomber also increases on the TASC. After conducting a thorough investigation, the TASC finds links between 3 gaming engineers and the case. Someone from Victoria College is also involved. The police find a dropbox and start investigating it too.
Major Sameer, on the other hand, starts to come up with a plan that will misguide intelligence agencies in India. Again, while picking up a dropbox, Karim ends up under the TASC’s radar. However, regardless of the rising suspicions on Karim, he and his friends manage to arrange for a van to go to the party. The TASC is very scared about Karim’s plan. They label Karim and his friends as terrorists. However, they later find out that a student from Victoria College, Sajid is actually the man behind the scooter blast. In the morning of the same day, Srikant suspects his wife is having an affair. However, she was just meeting Arvind – a colleague.
Family Man Season 1 Ending Explained
A guilt-ridden Srikant is sent to Srinagar as punishment for killing three innocent people. Moosa creates havoc in the hospital as he leaves a trail of bloodied bodies behind him. Basharat is attending a wedding in Baramulla. The residents of the town don’t let the army enter. That is because they consider themselves to be Pakistanis. Srikant enters regardless of innumerable warnings. The chaos this causes leads to the TASC losing Basharat’s whereabouts. Sajid escapes easily with help from the locals.
Srikant helps locate a wanted man in Balochistan – Faizan. He then goes to Pakistan to interrogate Faizan. The TASC discovers that the terrorists are planning a nerve gas attack in New Delhi. The gas has been smuggled into Kashmir for several years. In fact, it is on its way to Delhi now. The Pakistani Prime Minister learns about Mission Zulfiqar and tried to stop it. His main reason to do so is to avoid the economic crisis that the mission will create.
The mission is abandoned and the army successfully procures the nerve gas canisters. However, Moosa immediately jumps on plan B. The first season ends on a major cliffhanger. Sajid and Moosa enter the Orion Chemical Plant. They set up devices that will emit toxic gases and kill all of Delhi in less than 2 hours. Srikant brings Moosa’s mother on TV and her words soften his heart. The pressure of the gas, however, causes it to lead. Milind and Zoya even find out about it. But Srikant misses their calls as he basks into the euphoria of having completed the mission.
