Sreenivasan’s scripts in 1980s and 1990s brilliantly portrayed the amusing part of pulp fiction stories appeared in majority substandard Malayalam magazines while not to mention about his valiant effort in explaining the negative influence of such contents to the society. Through his subtle humor he was, on the other hand, pretty successful in providing incredible insights into the militant labor unions that are largely responsible for the closure of many industries in Kerala.
Sreenivasan has created a new dimension for Malayalam cinema by way of humor to tell stories in the simplest manner.
