Bhatti is the author of the Mahakavya Bhattikavya that consists of short cantos. The name Bhatti has been taken from the Prakriti name Bhartr. His work gave Magha the drive to show his grammatical skills to the extent that he does. He was known to Bhamaha. The list of Alamkaras given by Bhatti is in a certain measure though the source is still unknown.
Bhatti's poem serves the double plan of describing Rama's history as well as illustrating the rules of grammar. The twenty-two cantos fall into four sections; the first four cantos describe miscellaneous rules; then the next five give the leading rules, cantos ten to thirteen illustrate the ornaments of poetry and the rest of the cantos illustrates the use of the tempers and tenses. Pleasure and profit has been devised carefully. Bhatti has given the rank of a Mahakavi. Bhatti plots to produce interesting and effective verse. His aim helps his style as it does not allow the adoption of long compounds or obscure allusions.
The main metre used by Bhatti is the €ioka which is used in most of the Cantos; Upajati of the Indravajra type also prevails. There are other metres used which occur occasionally in the poem. Long metres are not used frequently and this makes the style comparatively easier. Large stanzas encourage development of thought and expression.
