The opera is set in the celestial court of Indra, the king of the gods (devas) in Hindu mythology. The play is written entirely in verse, and the central theme is a romance between a prince and a fairy. Operatic devices such as fireworks and masks are employed in enacting the play.Although the play was initially intended to be performed in royal court, songs from the play influenced the geet tradition in Urdu and quickly transitioned into popular culture, where “for at least two generations after that, actors and musicians of Oudh sang the songs of Inder Sabha.”The play included “31 ghazals, 9 thumri of gaya and Benares gharana, 4 holis, 15 songs and two chaubolas and five chhands with enough scope for dances as well.”
The play is considered a seminal work that directly influenced several important nineteenth and early-twentieth century Urdu plays that followed it, including Khadim Husain Afsos’s Bazm-e-Suleman (1862), Bahiron Singh Asmat’s Jashn-e-Parastan and Taj Mahal Farrukh’s Nigaristan-e-Farrukh (1911)
