The show was excellent. Make up part can be long so if you not one to sit and watch patiently, then go closer to the start of the show. The show itself is mesmerising and is a definite must see when in Kochi

All the tok tok tours in kochi will take you this place. Don't pay them! They charge 650rp for their show! You can see the original show, much better than this, at the katakhali center for 300rp.
