Sreenivasan was born in Patyam, a village near Thalassery in Kannur, North Malabar region of Kerala State in India. He has two brothers and a sister. His father was a school teacher and his mother a homemaker.
Sreenivasan completed his formal education at Koothuparamb middle school and Government High School, Kathiroor. He received a bachelor's degree in economics from Pazhassi Raja N. S. S. College, Mattanur. In 1977, Sreenivasan studied at the Film and Television Institute of Tamil Nadu, Chennai.
Sreenivasan is married to Vimala, a retired school teacher. His elder son, Vineeth Sreenivasan, is a director, lyricist, singer, dubbing artist and actor. His younger son, Dhyan Sreenivasan, made his debut in Thira, a thriller movie directed by his brother.
In 1984, Sreenivasan wrote his first film, Odaruthammava Aalariyam. He both wrote and acted in Varavelpu, Gandhinagar 2nd Street, Nadodikkattu and its two sequels, Pattanapravesham and Akkare Akkare Akkare.
Sreenivasan’s scripts in 1980’s and 90’s brilliantly portrayed the amusing part of people who were obsessed with pulp fiction stories that appeared in majority substandard Malayalam magazines while not to mention about his subtle approach in explaining the negative influence of such contents to the society of which majority were jobless due to the rise of communism in the state. Most of his character was represented with a caste name, even though their caste or family has nothing to do with their character. Many critics has opinioned this as his caste sympathy and praise.
Sreenivasan has created a new dimension for Malayalam cinema by way of humor to tell stories in the simplest manner.
