Description
The earthly King Pururavas rescues the celestial nymph Urvashi from a demon, and thus begins a love story that brings heaven and earth together. The lovers must overcome a range of obstacles, including a heavenly curse and a magical transformation before they can be together. A magnificent drama based on an episode from the Rig Veda, Vikramovarshiyam is filled with dramatic turns of event, music and dance. The scenes, characters and dialogues are at once lively and dramatic as well as sensitive and speculative. Believed to be the second of Kalidasa's three plays, it is a treat for the senses.
