Storyline

When evil was ruling the world, the Suryanshis chose an ordinary man as the warrior to fight evil. When the five natural elements of life, fire, earth, water, wind and sky invigorated his body, he gained superpowers from these elements. Eventually he transformed into Shaktimaan. Shaktimaan was the rebirth of Shri Satya who had formed the Suryanshi Sect after the war of the Mahabharata 7,500 years ago. He got his powers from 7 spiritual gurus who had blessed him with mystical yogic shakti and trained him in ancient combat forms. During his training, Shaktimaan was taught the way to energize the 7 chakras of body through Kundalini Yoga that helped him get mystical and supernatural powers. He also conducted the ritual of death in order to get total control over his powers. This process, instead of killing him, made him almost immortal and stronger than any mere human being.

The very definition of bad TV
9 November 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Back in the days, we used to watch many great TV series, especially during the DD-only era. The choices were too less, but quality was delivered in many TV serials. Quality is exactly what Shaktimaan lacked. Absolutely horrible graphics, silly dialogs along with a incompetent direction made this a perfect recipe of bad TV airing in those days. Frankly I cannot think of any other contemporary series that's as badly conceptualized as this one.

I remember watching a couple of episodes and ended laughing on the floor. If I put it this way, this is an out and out laugh riot. Perfect fit into the "So bad it's good" category.
