Mostly, these romantic compositions are set in a slow tempo and the dancer gets full scope to depict the emotion by gestures, glances, and softer movements to bring home to the audiences the full meaning of the composition. The dancer while portraying the bhava brings out the myriad nuances of the Nayaka-Nayika concept of Hindus erotic psychology. The songs used in this item deal with devotion or Bhakti Rasa.
