Sincere and dedicated to his art, koolipatti subramani enacts themes and acts that are unusual and rarely adapted by his peers. Such as yayathi kalyanam, varunamala thavasu, kovilan sarithiram. His uniqueness lies in the way he scripts his acts without a snag.
The attention he gives to the potentials of a limitless and untiring voice, appropriateness of body language, necessary adavu movements are what makes him one of the notable masters of this dying art. There is a palpable quality in whatever he does, be it the stand,the postures, the movement or the way the plot flows through the act. His intolerance towards errors in performance , even those of others is a trait that ensures this quality.
Any artist who comes across this touchstone of an artist and is willing to assess his own skill by interacting with him can himself be said to have an indepth knowledge of the art.
