Think of a cross between True Lies and Wagle Ki Duniya and you have The Family Man. Raj and D K’s story of the everyday life of intelligence officer Srikant Tiwari is superbly written, cast and produced. It recently finished a successful second season on Amazon Prime Video — a tiny part of the $386-billion shopping giant Amazon. At Rs 999 a month, the Prime service offers free shipping for things bought on the site; it also throws in Prime Music and Video. That is how I watched The Family Man, Paatal Lok and other critically acclaimed shows on Amazon
