The show garnered a lot of TRPs, especially whenever it aired the story of the myriad avatars that the gods and goddesses had to take to restore peace and to destroy the evils. As a result, the makers decided to re-release three episodes from the original serial. The first episode is the part wherein Sari's father insults her and Mahadev out of spite as he doesn't approve of Shiva and Sari's match.
As a result, she takes an extreme step as she feels bad because of her husband's insult. The second chapter told the tale of how goddess Parvati becomes Mahakali to teach a demon, who is notorious for harassing girls and has powers that no man can conquer, a lesson and how in her anger she destroys everything until something happens that makes her stop. The plot reveals what happened. It is also the most watched episode of the original series. The third and the last one told the narrative of Shiva's ardent devotee Banasura. He impresses Lord with his devotion.
Mahadev blesses him with two bonanza. He uses these blessings to destruction as he thinks no one can defeat him. God Krishna then decided to intervene and kill him. What happens further and Krishna defeats him in spite of his boons, forms the crux of the storyline. It is also available on Hotstar application for viewing.
