Plot of Shakti the Power
Shekhar (Sanjay Kapoor) and Nandini (Karisma Kapoor) are an Indian couple living in Canada with their young son Raja.
Shekhar hears news of violence in India, and the family journeys to his ancestral house, which is in a rural town of Bihar, the North Indian State of India.
Nandini is shocked to see that Shekhar’s family is deeply patriarchal and embroiled in feudal gang wars, lead by Shekhar’s father Narsimha (Nana Patekar).
Shekhar tries to bring an end to these feuds, but is attacked by a rival gang and killed. Nandini, having been suddenly made a widow, decides to leave India with her son but Narsimha does not allow this and virtually imprisons them.
Desperate to escape, her only allies are Shekhar’s mother and sister. Wanted by Narsimha, Nandini seeks help from drifter Jai Singh (Shahrukh Khan) who, after hesitation, helps her and her son board a train to Jaipur.
Jai engages in a fight with Narasimha’s men, and successfully protects Nandini and Raja, but he dies. Shekhar’s mother emotionally begs Narsimha to let Nandini and her son go, but he does not relent.
At the airport, Narsimha becomes overwhelmed with emotion after interacting with his grandson and allows Nandini and Raja to peacefully leave and go back to Canada.
