Sreenivasan has time and again made it clear that Padmasree Bharat Dr Saroj Kumar is not a sequel to Mohanlal-Sreenivasan starrer, Udayananu Thaaram. However, the audience expected Dr Saroj Kumar to be an extension of the original in spite of the absence of superstar Mohanlal in the film.
If you are expecting to see a film as classy and funny as Udayananu Thaaram, then Padmasree Bharat Dr Saroj Kumar, directed by Sajin Raghava might disappoint you.
Dr Saroj Kumar retains many of the characters of Udayananu Thaaram. However, this time, they fail to make any remarkable impact since all you see them do is repeat their old avatars.
