In 'Kathaparayumbol', Sreenivasan plays a barber (Balan), who's unwilling to subscribe to the dictates of modern society. Sreenivasan steals the show with his subtle enactment of the idealistic Balan. In the offbeat 'Thakarchenda' (2009), Sreenivasan plays a physically challenged beggar, and complements the realistic narrative with his effortless rendering of the various shades of the character.
