  • It's definetly a must have when you are in fort cochin! We were very facinated by the coulours and the musik and the whole Theatre. We loved it!! 
  • Mind you: Sightseeing at the bottom is worth seeing, but I had too high expectations. Our show was composed of two mimi, wonderfully dressed in the clothes you see in the pictures, a drum player and one of dishes. That's it. The show itself has lasted not more than half an hour, but we were in the small theater more than two hours. Before we have seen the trick of two actors, spectacular especially for older MIME who created a very intimate and engaging, but then had to wait more than half an hour a busloads of tourists who had booked late. The old MIME very well. The other only. However it can be done.

  • One thing must see if one is in kerala... esp their dress up n eye movements. Its totally a dance of expression with no words and then one realizes how they perform their traditional story tales..
