We were firstly confused as to which Katakali Centre to visit. Eventually we selected Mudra Kathakali Centre, and it proved to be a fantastic choice and time well spent. The best part of the show was the dress-up preparation, which the audience can see about 45 minutes prior to show start time. We could see that each actor was very passionate about his role, and that resulted into a great overall show. My thanks to all at Mudra Kathakali Centre, and best wishes. Keep up the good work please.

They gave great performances. Everyday tickets sold out. They are internationally known. I am happy and grateful for the opportunity to photograph them in persons while they had their make-up session five hours before the show started. Their hand Mudras and Faces expressions were simply unbelievable a work of art, years of training definitely gives a perfect show. Their costumes were a "WOW". Worth your money. We became good friends and they are constantly in my heart.

Really impressed with the show content and the presentation. The show started off by a brief explanation about the history of kathakali and its various expressions and mudras involved. This is followed by the actual dance performance. It's a nice small act performed very well which keeps the audience intrigued till the end. The expressions of the dancers is worth watching. Overall a nice cultural experience not to be missed.
