The play focuses on young audiences whose members often find it difficult to relate to the complex epic and puranic stories of the traditional Kattaikkuttu repertoire. The Magic Horse is about communication and power ("sakti"). It narrates the unexpected encounter between two school children and two aliens who have lost their sakti. In an attempt to recover this quality, the aliens and the children seek help from animals and men, but finally it is the clown who shows them - unknowingly - the way to regain their power. Designed as a children's play, the emphasis is on a visually attractive presentation, songs and a simple dialogue. Yet the different layers in the story offer a message also to grown-ups who may interpret it in their own way(s). The play-script of The Magic Horse is published in India as a children's book.
