Fantastic performances

Excellent, exciting, energetic and overall very enjoyable experience.
The artists were very hospitable and talked to us after the performance.
You get to take pictures with them after kathakali and kalari performances and there are interactive performances as well.
The price is a steal and we almost felt bad only giving that much.
Recommend to anyone visiting Munnar.

Only issue we felt was the audio quality of the speakers wasn't upto the mark so the narration was not clear sometimes.

This show was worth visiting. I enjoyed every single moment in the show . Kuddos to all the artists who had done an amazing job. I also remember their names Mr. Lalu , Baby, Aly, Saheem, Sabith .They were very nice and 🔥 fire show was one of the best treat to our eyes. I suggest everyone who is going to Munnar to watch this show.

One of the highlights of our trip to India!
Dec 2019
We attended both the Kathakali show and the martial arts performance. The dance was good, although the woman narrating the show in English was impossible to understand, so I would suggest they fix the mike or perhaps get another narrator. But the costumes, dancing, and humor were great.

The martial arts performance was INCREDIBLE! These young men are so talented. My two boys, ages 4 and 6, were absolutely riveted the entire time. They used swords, axes, shields, sticks, and even fire. Just simply amazing. It is evident that these young men have practiced for years and are at the top of their game. Bravo! You deserve all the praise and more.

Show is nice but scary...
Dec 2019 • Family
Viewers sit too close to the activities. Viewers are exposed and there is no in-between protection. Sharp metallic objects, fire, sparks are used in the show/activities. Performers may be the trained experts and must be taking the utmost precautions, but torn mattresses being used in the show do point out to the compromises creeping in. We, in the first row, did experience the drops of flammable liquid hitting us in the first swivel of the rod with fire at the ends of it. Also, not sure how safe a nylon dress is from the sparks, flying in the last act.

I really appreciate the efforts in running such a show, but urge the organizers to upscale the safety aspect. It seemed to be a popular show. The seats were full. I guess they can charge more to cover the safety aspects, if necessary.

A must see - especially the martial arts show!
Dec 2019 • Family
We bought tickets for both shows in advance and managed to get good seats. Although It seems to me that all seats will give you a good view. For the Kathakali performance we were seating on the front row of the balcony which was very uncomfortable because of the small space for our legs. Better to go for the front row on the ground floor. Although in that case you may be invited to participate in the performance! Unfortunately, the narrator was very difficult to understand. We therefore could not follow the story. But the show was nice, but a bit boring after a while. The Kalaripayattu martial arts show was very entertaining. Amazing performances! A must see. My only concern was safety: the audience is sitting very close to the arena - what if a sword accidentally flies off? Or what is the fire accidentally spreads? I did not see any extinguisher and it would be impossible to quickly get out of the little underground theatre. Maybe something for improvement?

Local martial arts

Interesting to check this out . Also visitors, get a chance to be involved in one of the martial art step that they do. Only if you have children below 6, not really advisable to go for this show. Otherwise, go ahead and enjoy.
