The main character Bheema in a much joyful mood after the victory over the demon. This is a scene from a Kathakali performance at Munnar. Kathakali is a dance drama style originated in Kerala around 17th century, known for its colorful make up and costumes.

A good capture of this Kathakali performance, I must say you've a crisp shot with his colourful green face in perfect focus. In Kathakali even the colours have significance, only virtuous characters use green like the one seen here.
The only problem I see with this image is the composition where in the banner from the background is seen along with a half door to the left. I don't know whether you could have avoided it and taken a shot or a close up of just the face of this artist along with his crown would have been great as well.
