Theyyam is a form of worship where man dons the guise of God and propitiates the Gods through possessed dancing; Theyyam is also known by the name Kaliyaattom. The performance of Theyyam is supposed to make life prosperous and remove all hazards. Theyyam is perhaps the most significant ritualistic art form of Kerala – God’s Own Country. (Vengara.com)

Bienvenue sur TE!
Un très beau portrait, lumineux et coloré, de cet homme paré pour le rituel. Je regrette un peu le bout de tête de l'homme à gauche et les vêtements trop clairs de la personne en arrière plan.

This has all the qualities of an excellent Portrait, you should have however recomposed to avoid the partially visible Man's head and the defocused Woman in the Background.
Nevertheless, I love the strong punchy colours and the shallow DOF.
Wished your note also talked about where you shot this image too.
