Nautanki is one of the most popular folk operatic theater performance traditions of South Asia, particularly in northern India. Before the advent of Bollywood (Hindi film industry), Nautanki was the single most popular form of entertainment in the villages and towns of northern India.

According to the English dictionary "melodrama" means "exaggerated language or behaviour or an occurance suggestive of this". This word in itself is not a derogatory or bad word but it should be taken in context of the situation in which it is said.
This much abused word is actually a folk art form that has been prevalent in our culture for over a thousand years. And in most other cultures in Asia. A folk art form of the theatre. Usually performed by traveling troupes of actors, it comprised the telling of stories using all the nine Rasaa's of emotions as described in various ancients texts , including in Yoga. Therefore the word - 'Nau (nine) tanki'.....

Nautanki would intersperse the telling of a moral tale with a heady mixture of melodrama, songs and comic interludes
