'Shows impressive command over Bharatanatyam. Commendable control over both technique and expressional aspects. The araimandi, full leg and hand stretches and teermanams were immaculately rendered. Musical statements asking if Krishna is stone hearted were highly embellished. Pancha Kalyani Devi homage was also communicative. Like the placid waters of a serene stream' - Leela Venkataraman, The Hindu, Friday Review, New Delhi, September 2012
