Samavakara is the dramatic representation of some mythological fable in three acts. The first act continues for nine hours, the second act prolongs foe three and a half hours and the third act continues for an hour and a half.
The story relates to gods and demons, although mortals may be introduced. There is no individual hero in a Samavakara play. Sometimes the heroes may be as many as twelve in number as Lord Krishna
and other divinities.
The theme of Samavarka is also varied. Although love may be touched upon, heroism should be the main passion as the theme. The acts of enmity is exhibited. Tempests, combats, and the storming of towns, are also represented, and all the pride and pomp of war, as horses, elephants, and cars, also forms the theme of Samavarka.
