Family Aaj Kal Review: Heartfelt Drama That Packs An Emotional Punch

About Family Aaj Kal

The series Family Aaj Kal opens with the definition of family. The show states that a family is a group of people who grow together. In this family drama, three generations learn overcome their prejudices, pride and put their feelings aside for the sake of others. Family Aaj Kal is an earnest and moving drama about a loving family that puts it in the work when the going gets tough.

Family Aaj Kal: Plot

The SonyLIv series is about the Kashyaps from Delhi who seemingly have everything going for them. Shekhar (the late Nitesh Pandey) and Faiza (Sonali Sachdev) have a blessed marriage with their two children Meher (Apoorva Arora) and Sahir (Aakarshan Singh). That is until Shekhar's father (Masood Akhtar) arrives to stay with them, and Meher drops a bombshell about the man she's dating and serious about. When the happy family hits its first hurdle, how does it react? The show's narrative follows how each member deals with the upheaval in relationships.

Family Aaj Kal: Writing and Direction

With only five succinct episodes, writer Manoj Kalwani does not prolong any unnecessary drama for the show. Across the different generations of the Kashyaps, each member has their own way of handling situations and emotions. The rapport between the family also feels natural. The only part of the show that feels a bit awkward is when it switches and has the characters speak to a camera as if they are in a documentary to reveal their real feelings. However, despite that little blip, Family Aaj Kal and its director Parikshit Joshi keeps the drama moving, leaving us satisfied and wanting more at the end of it.

Family Aaj Kal: Performances

The show begins with a dedicated to Pandey who plays Shekhar and it's a lovely note for the family series to begin on. The entire cast from Arora to Prakhar Singh, who plays her boyfriend, have an easy, genuine chemistry amongst them all. The moments of humour and drama (which reaches a breaking point for Meher) are handled well by the cast. Even Aakarshan who plays the youngest Kashyap member plays the teenager with some empathy.

Family Aaj Kal: Critique

Tackling the subject of class and religion, Family Aaj Kal depicts situations that could hit quite close to home for many. The way the show engages with conversations within families is optimistic and progressive. The series focuses on the biases that one may knowingly or unknowingly hold in life and the solution is presented in a heartwarming manner as well. The time you spend with the Kashyaps will not be wasted; the drama will make you feel as you're watching someone known.
