Ketan Mehta’s classic sci-fi series ‘Captain Vyom’ to come alive on YouTube

MUMBAI: Noted filmmaker Ketan Mehta will re-launch his science fiction television series on superhero ‘Captain Vyom’.

The restored and revamped TV series with enhanced visual effects and action sequences will go live on 23 June on Cosmos Maya’s YouTube channel Wow Teenz.

Captain VyomDirected by National Award-winning director Ketan Mehta, ‘Captain Vyom’ is the first Indian live-action superhero sci-fi TV series, which was aired on DD National at the turn of the century.

The TV series pioneered the art of computer animation and visual effects in India. In the show, Captain Vyom takes viewers to the future, i.e. 2123, where humans conquer the entire solar system.

Speaking about the re-launch, Mehta said, “It has been almost 20 years since this landmark show was first aired. The show went on to achieve a cult following among its viewers, who were then introduced to a show that was much ahead of its time, and in an era when science-fiction and superheroes were unheard concepts not just on television, but also in films.”

The story of the series is about Captain Vyom, played by Milind Soman. He is a space warrior, who is assigned the job of arresting 12 deadly criminals who escape the high security prison in the ‘IO’. IO is located on the eighth moon of the planet Jupiter, which gets dissembled after a meteor strike and its security system disables.
