We had booked the 1 hour Kathakali show @ Punarjani. The performers wore some old dirty clothes. The hall was small, clumsy with no elevation for any of the seats. the audience in the back could not even get the stage view. All in all, not a good experience at all.

The people of the Punarjani Traditional Village are some of the most amazing and dedicated people i have ever met, for the love of art and performance. They are keeping a tradition which is unfortunately dyeing alive and the shows are absolutely fantastic. Both shows are really exciting and amazing to watch. The vocal performer for the Kathakali show was one of the best singers i have ever heard in my life. I truly felt like everyone in the show was giving 110%. And the Kalaripayuttu show was absolutely exhilarating. The performer were absolutely amazing and just kept us in awe. The leader of the group did an amazing double staff spinning with fire which was some of the best ive ever seen in the world. I see alot of fire performances and this man was on point. (after the show i met him and spoke to him about his training and the facility, they are legit people just keeping an amazing art fourm alive.) i strongly recommend going to the Punarjani Traditional Village, its an experience you will not ever forget. Even if your not looking to do touristy things, it really feels like your absorbing the culture in a way you'd never expect. I cannot say enough amazing things about the shows.
