Its nice to see the Kathakali on the stage in Munnar and Thekkady. Cost Rs.200 per person but it a great entertainment.
kathakali is a beautiful amalgamation of drama. communation is made through the remarkable use of gestures and much also lends kathakali its universal appeal. they have elaborate costume and is a magicial sight to watch kathakali artists to per their traditional attire. it is something very different and experience, its the dance of kerala.

It's not something I would rush... More
Had no idea what Kathakali was, but what an experience! For those others that may not know it is basically a story told by dance and expressions. It is only to be found. In Kerala, if your there don't miss it.
Although the martial arts display was late starting (this is India after all!), and there was no accompanying music, it was nevertheless a good show, with clear explanations as to how the various forms evolved. Particularly impressive was the man who displayed his urumi skills, which were nothing short of breathtaking. Everyone in the audience was utterly mesmerised! After the... More
