Romantic plays in Assamese drama provide the required nourishment to the playwrights who are selective and poetically passionate. The poetic dramas are: K. Ghaliha's Dhuli, Kirti and Mukti Bardoloi's Sur vijay, Luit Konwar, Meghavali, Ananda Barua's Kapau Konwari, Badan Sarma's Kavitar janma, Heimantika and Parvati Barua's Lakhimi and Sonar soleng (1929). The intrinsic characters of these dramas are musical and operatic. Some of the romantic plays of pre independence era include Benudhar's Rajkhaowa's as for example Seutikiran (1894) is a romantic love tragedy.
One-act plays and radio-dramas are among the modern experiments in Assamese literature. L. N. Bezbaroa's light comedies like Nomal, Pachani, and some more are one-act plays. However the real leader of the modern one-act play is Lakshmi Sharma with her Prajapatir bhul. Tafazul Ali, H. C. Bhattacharjya, Bina Barua, S. P. Barua, Mahendra Bora, Homen Bargohain, Jogen Chetia, Satish Das, Bhaben Saikia, D. K. Saikia and Kiran Sarma have made a mark in this field of drama.
Bina Barua's Abelar nat, a psychological study of two fuelling cross-currents and Pravin Phukan's Tritaranga, an anthology of three social plays, have stabilised this experiment into an ennobling experience. The radio drama in Assamese literature made its debut with the establishment of the Guwahati station of All India Radio in 1948. Radio dramas like Bhogjara, Jonakir biya, Adha aka chhabi, Jinti, Malati, Era batar sur, Ghatoal have added to the compass of our dramatic literature.
