The serial tells us the popular story of the great Goddess Durga. She formed one of the most powerful figures in all of Hindu mythology and got worshiped by many throughout the country. The series follows her on her journey as she eradicates evil from the planet and restores it to its normal balance. She gets assisted in these divine tasks by the Holy Trinity, more commonly referred to as the Trimurti.
The trio of Lord Brahma, who is the Creator of all life, Lord Vishnu, who oversees the Preservation of every life form, and Lord Shiva, who acts as the Destroyer of life to usher in the new, aid her and stand by her as she takes it upon herself to set things right. The Holy Trinity call upon the Goddess when they can no longer tackle the problems in front of them. They seek her help in maintaining serenity upon both Earth and the Heavens.
The show also tells us about the various human beings who got blessed by these divine powers and got boons in return for their staunch meditation and unflinching faith in the Gods. Viswaroopam deals with the age old saga of good against evil and how the Gods and Goddesses watch over us at all times. It shows us how the deities took various reincarnations whenever Earth got threatened by the forces of demons and other forms of evil. They come down from the heavens and purge the earth of all forms of sin.
From Goddess Durga to Lord Shiva, the program takes us on their journey across troubled times and what steps they took to repel evil. We witness the birth of Goddess Durga herself and the steps she took to overcome the threats faced by the earth and its people. Some of her conquests extended to the heavenly realms as well with her taking up arms against some very powerful demons who marched on the heavens and threatened to take over. She fought with all her might and rallied the deities to counter the demons and their minions from exerting their dominance over all that is good and pure.
We follow the journey of other deities as well on similar exploits. These also give the viewers an insight into how the various legends and special temples dedicated to them come about. Some of these places of worship have great historical significance showing what all the Gods went through in order to ensure a prosperous future for all of the mankind.
