Reviewed 14 December 2013

There wasn't anything I disliked. We were very impressed. The price was reasonable and at times the performance was jaw dropping

Fantastic display of skills, strength and sheer hard work. Definitely something worth seeing - but be warned - it's really hot in the room!

“Awstruck Experience”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

A must go place in Thekkedy. Kalaripayattu was the martial art of ancient Kerala done in Kalari. Kalari means battlefield.
It is still done traditionally by local well trained people.

This is oldest and finest fighting system in existence.

“Good !!!”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

As recommended No.1 on trip advisor i went there but felt kind of Overrated.

Yeah Boys did Good but not the best thing to do in Thekkady, Went for kathakali also behind it but it was in Local Language so was difficult to understand the Play.
