Drama is an ancient word which connotes the representation of an idea through the use of dialogue and action. It is a simple act of presenting a storyline with the activities of many actors and actresses to fit into a particular character and convey the necessary information to people or viewers. Drama can be used to represent ideas that are not really into something that people would like, as such, it requires the use of materials and resources like costumes, dressings, visual effects, and sound effects to depict a particular story.


Drama is usually acted on the stage. Melodrama, on the other hand, is a particular type of drama. It is a type of drama which usually comes with a musical accompaniment to intensify the effect of certain scenes. This involves the use of mind-blowing actions that are capable of affecting the feelings and emotions of the viewers. For example, a kind of complex music can be played together with a scene that shows two people physically assaulting themselves.
