Malavikagnimitram is one of the 3 dramas penned by the great poet Kalidasa, and on analyzing the construction and language of the play, scholars opine that this must have been the earliest of the three. It is a Naataka in 5 acts, with the king Agnimitra as Naayaka (hero) and Malavika, a princess who is in the guise of the queen’s maid as the Naayikaa (heroine). The main rasa is Shringara, but the drama also excels in the portrayal of other rasas, such as haasya (humour). There are also several aspects of music and dance which are woven into the plot deftly by the poet.
Malavikagnimitram is prescribed for study in several graduate level Sanskrit examinations, and the 4th level of Chittoor board exams.
