The instrumentalists and vocalists who support the actors sit at the rear with mridangam, drums and kaimani i.e. small cymbals. They commence by singing in praise of the god Ganesha and Goddess Saraswati, followed by the entrance of two Kurattis who assume the characters of the spouses of Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. They engage in a wordy duel, dramatized through singing and dancing. In their quarrel they find fault with each other's husbands. In the end a third Kuratti impersonating Saraswati comes to the rescue and strikes a compromise. Then the Kuravan exhibits many acrobatic feats including rope dancing to musical accompaniment. Finally his old mother dances, which provides a lot of fun to the audience.
