- Mrichchhakatika portrays in a metaphorical way the essential conflict of social beings torn between good and evil. On one hand there are the king Palaka and his brother in law, Shakara – rich, mighty and rogue. On the other hand, there is a trail of and poor persons like Charudatta, Sharbilak, Sambahak, Durdurak, Sthabarak, Bardhamanak, Madanika, Radanika, Goha, Ahinta. But there is only one exceptional character – Basantasena, the protagonist. She is rich but characteristically truthful. Her inherent honesty indulges her to forsake all her treasures and ornaments and embrace the destitute Charudatta.
- In this play the clay cart plays most symbolic role, so, when it appears on the stage, laden with gold ornaments, the very inanimate cart becomes the ideogram of honest and candid animated beings – an incarnation of the principal theme of the play.
