8 Reasons Why We Miss Watching Shaktimaan
The tag line that might now seem sticky was then an enchantment on each child’s mind, “Kanoon ka dost, mujrimo ka dushman”. Now we force seem rather oblivious to the fascination we once had to Shaktimaan but the show was a massive hit back then and there are specific great reasons why it was such a magnificent show.
1. Well Mukesh Khanna did look like a real Indian superhero
Everyone has to decide that there couldn’t have been a improved Shaktimaan than Mukesh Khanna himself. The character had a proportion of appeal and was played to perfection by the actor. With his verbal Hindi skills he mesmerised everybody and made everybody believe that smooth India can have it’s share of superheroes.
There was a time when we usage to see a Shaktimaan everywhere, be it biscuits or notepads or even t-shirts. Kids were wild about that Shaktimaan costume that was a fulsome possession in those times. Well all glory to Mukesh Khanna to make Shaktiman real.
2. Tamraj Kilvish was one hell of a villain
Oh how we reviled the Tamraj Kilvish at that time! Poor man has done nothing more than saying ‘Andhera kaayam rahe’. The moment of thrill and actual suspense was provided by the antagonist Kilvish.
Shaktimaan beating the evil man’s plans to powder is what we craved to watch. The show would have been rather slow if not for Kilvish and he supremacy be one of the characters we miss the most from the cast.
3. Who can forget Pandit Gangadhar Vidyadhar Mayadhar Omkarnath Shastri
Shaktimaan’s alter ego none additional than the stupid Gangadhar was an element of fun and twisted comedy. He was the funny bones of the series and a has bagged several hilarious moments of the show. If there was a man on the show who could have ridiculed over the knowledge of Shaktimaan current than it was Mr. Gangadhar himself.
Despite of being the boring journalist the man was greatly more on the inside and we permanently longed for him to become Shaktimaan and except the day once again.
4. The beautiful Journalist Geeta Vishwas
The girl on the display Journalist Geeta Vishwas who fancied our very personal Shaktimaan was the one who sparked things up to punch just the correct amount of interest in it. Apart from being Shaktimaan’s admirer, she worked for the newspaper ‘Aaj Ki Aawaz’ and became the legend on the show who discovered the greatest facts of all, ‘Gangadhar hi Shaktimaan Hai’.
5. The stupendous animation
It’s hilarious how amazed we stood when we watched that gruesome animation but it not ever stops from creation you feel nostalgic. The animation would follow as quickly as a brawl between Shaktimaan and several one of the villain, ‘Kekdaman’, ‘Electricman’, or ‘Dr.Jaykal’ would start.
Despite of their wretched efforts in overthrowing the stability of the universe, Shaktimaan would contract with all of them and make sure that the world was as dreamily in balance as it permanently have been. How we loved persons action sequences.
6. Shaktimaan could spin
You can’t repudiate having tried to spin like Shaktimaan as a kid! Unlike the normal superheroes, Shaktimaan spun in its place of flying. Well his spinning did sound alike a mega fan rotating but it was still thrilling.
7. This old man always giving out free gyan to shaktiman
That Mahaguru(Tom Alter), He said things that I don’t know even right now. But I’m certain he told Shaktimaan to follow the path of justice.
8. Waiting for ‘Choti Choti Magar Moti Baatein’
If you want to get what social campaigns looked like in the 90s then watch a section of ‘Choti Choti Magar Moti Baatein’ that use to follow next each episode where Shaktimaan caught kids doing wrong things and enlightened them regarding the better facts of life. Remember all those kids saying ‘Sorry Shaktimaan’ which trended as one of the greatest famous meme’s that was chanted by each child of that era. Well who could have been a improved person to discipline children!
