If you rewind, he had talked about tiruppugazh, which I don't disagree outright, but to get the contemporary musical aesthetics, for kAdi mOdi, it can be taken in triSra naDai, caturaSra jampai tALam - for the 21. kAdi , mOdi itself is in triSra gati from a syllabic perspective!
Here is the exact timeline link: https://youtu.be/qXYDgLrT7R0?t=1407

After that post, there has been a specific demo of the same by SrI tAyumAnavar during May 2018 SrI Pazhani remembrance day.

https://youtu.be/eRHvFSNb3tg?t=1016

he demonstrates the canda tALa, immediately noting the difficulty of doing it these days. Converts it to miSra jampa with the last sollu of laghu done as 3 instead of 2 (for the equivalent kAla pramANam). That makes 10*2 = 20 into 21 to accomodate the 21 akshara tirupugazh line.

That is a hybrid solution - giving the flavor of canda tALam within a standard sUlAdi tALA structure.

Then he finally goes into full triSra naDai mode where he picks triSra tripuTA. This is similar to catuSra jampa that I suggested. With catuSra jampa, kAdi mOdi vadAdu nUl - the subject fits into pURvAnga almost with "nUl " , where the dhIrga goes over anudRtam (saSabda kriyA). While kaTriduvORum does an atItam to the second one. These are there in triSra tripuTa as well , the first one in the vAdADu.

He just doesn't simply render his own versions - it is [Ahem!] the true version ;) :

See how he ensures that dayala vAla is taken atItam and that is prAsa maitri on uttarAnga with tyAgaraja vandanIya where "ya" on "tyA" falls on arudhi. yati maitri is also maintained.

And now here the word atItam gets an emphasis as atIta : https://youtu.be/Ptt8FZ_gSvo?t=748 to the tALa krama!

And now dayAla is atItam as well:

atIta vidvans! :lol:

Now a slight adjustment - guNa SIla , guNa and SIla get equal time. guNa is shortened by a mAtra will leave dayAla to be taken atItam more easily.

Also with vicakshana being atItam, dayAla following same shows some nice alignment for pURvAnga and uttarAnga.

In vinOda mOhana kara, mOhana can be elongated on the long syllable mO to then compress hanakara to shorter mAtras, to give dhIrga to express itself nicely!
