‘Maharakshak: Aryan’ was a thriller, action and fantasy serial that was telecast on Zee TV network. It was aired on air on November 1, 2014, at 7 p.m. The series was a superhero trilogy which had a very familiar concept which showcased the triumph of good over evil.
The TV serial is a journey of Aryan, who is a college student and has no clue about his supernatural powers till he turns eighteen. New actor
Aakarshan Singh had portrayed the role of the superhero, but he is always groomed as a commoner in normal and manageable outfits. Other supporting casts include
Abigail Jain and Khalid Siddiqui.
And the villain character is portrayed by
Reshmi Ghosh, and
Mishal Raheja. The show is almost like a Bollywood plot where evil wants to rule the world by conquering magical ‘
Mani’ (diamonds). Despite its magical concept, the show was not touted as a children series, but it was acclaimed as a family show that would attract the adult audiences too.
The depth of the story would connect every section of the family, the maker of the serial had stated. When the show was launched, it was a 13-week series where every episode had featured a new villain, and the viewers can watch the journey of Aryan and how he copes up with the change. Maharakshak Aryan is a serial that showed how Aryan as a hero faces almost the worst fears and re-write the destiny and emerge as a winner.
The TV series sequel ‘
Maharakshak Devi’ is now being aired on Zee TV where the male protagonist has been replaced by a woman character and it is the heroine who struggles to make us feel the same essence that good triumphs over evil forever.
