Description

Malavikagnimitram is the first play of Kalidasa composed in five Acts. It is the story of King Agnimitra’s love for Malavika, an unknown beautiful girl living in the royal harem. She was proficient in music and dance. This play is a court comedy of royal love, in which harem jealousies and court intrigues mingle to raise romantic situations of love, amusing scenes of confrontation and a merry, light-hearted air which are thoroughly enjoyable.

It is truly the author’s ingenuity, skill and ability for scheming that enable Agnimitra to meet Malavika and finally win her as his wife and queen. In spite of his political direction in matters of State, Agnimitra appears as a passive hero, thoroughly dependent on Vidushaka his minister for the success of his love affair. Kalidasa’s skill in creating dramatic situations is beyond doubt. Despite several defects, the play bears the unmistakable stamp of Kalidasa’s workmanship
