“good kathakali show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

Though the place ans stage were small, the kathakali show was very good. Their expressions were really fantastic. The martial arts show was ok but very good towards the end.

“kathakali”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

this is a must for a cultural traveller. We had a little kid with us and were not sure if she would stay or not. but we decided to brave it. She enjoyed it throughly and still recites katha-kali after our trip. the show was fantastic and the dressing and everything is very good. if you have an evening in Munnar, dont miss this one

“Puarjani - A Terrible Show”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

These days it has become fashion to talk about culture by performing art. Punarjani is also doing same. They are simply cheating domestic & foreign tourist by showing fake Kathakali & Kerala martial art. The Hall is clumsy, dirty, crowded with no safety exit or fire-safety. Music is loud, ear deafening & unclear.
One can enjoy True Kathakali in other parts of Kerala.

“Touristy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

Very touristy...but the martial arts are prettycool. The facilitiy is a shack where they have made a stage and seating...its very cramped, over crowded and overall not a particularly pleasant experience, except that the performance itself if very good

“Excellent martial arts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2011

One shouldn't miss this show of Kerala martial arts. It's simply superb. They also have a Kathakali - Kerala traditional dance show- which I gave a miss due to my travel program. The show has several parts including hand to hand combat, weapons combat and other dangerous martial arts style delivered exquisitely.
