Svapna-vasavadattam, a drama of six Acts composed by Bhasa, is based on the Brihatakatha of Gunadhya and is referred to in the Mahabharata. Bhasa stands pre-eminent for the boldness of his conception, insight into character and for this homely sparkling style. He has written about thirteen plays of which the Svapna-vasavadatta is reckoned as a masterpiece both in ancient Indian and modern criticism. Based on the well-known love-tale of Udayana and Vasavadatta, Bhasa’s play abounds in dramatic excitement, suspense, surprise and humour.
