YouTube is a gift that keeps giving and Ultra has made the correct use of YouTube – it’s put the whole Shaktimaan series up on YouTube and you can watch the whole lot of 336 episodes – legally and free! The best part about this upload is that there is digital altering and no new graphics. Just fire up your YouTube and you will be transported into those classy times of the 90s when you were just waiting to be meet your favorite Indian superhero – bad graphics and all.
Shaktimaan was arguably the first Indian superhero that was the brainchild of Mukesh Khanna, who played the part in the original series, starting in 1997 and ending sometime in 2005. Since then, there has been an animated series and even a film based on the superhero character, Shaktimaan: The Animated Series and Hamara Hero Shaktimaan. Back in the day, Diamond Comics and Raj Comics both commissioned comic books based on the Shaktimaan character.
There have also been rumors that Mukesh Khanna has been toying with the idea of returning to the small screen as Shaktimaan, but there are no confirmed reports about this. Be that as it may, we are happy that we can relive our childhood watching Shaktimaan. Thank you, Shaktimaan!
