Perfection,perfection, perfection.Missionary dedication to the ancient martial art of Kalaripayattu is on display here.The centre is a temple to the lengendary art of Kalari.Every single move makes you awestruck.And cameras always on to capture yet another motion of coordination and perfection.Needless to say,a trip to Thekkady cannot be complete without witnessing this inspiring wonder.The narration and the acoustics need improvement.The narrator makes the right effort and only needs to work on the infections and modulation of voice, while acoustics may require more investment.
