After introducing his friend to his mother & women folk in the andhapuram or women's quarters, Kandhanmaran continues showing his Kadambur Palace around to his friend Vandhiyathevan. Finally, the friends decide to watch Kuravai Koothu & Velanaatam being staged in the palace grounds.
Kuravai Koothu is an ancient folk dance form performed by 7 to 9 women. It is practiced by rural women and staged in Murugan temples. It is a tribute to Lord Muruga where his valour and virtues are extolled through the song & dance.
Velanaatam is a dance/drama form, where a man & a woman are dressed & made up in blood red. It is danced with lot of vigour, and, at the end the man tells some prophecies.
