One must admit that Prasanna who sports grey hair and a paunch has undergone a remarkable transformation to play the part of the nerdy scientist.  And like any other scientist, he too is eccentric and socially awkward. But what must also be acknowledged is the fact that Prasanna as an actor does not overdo stuff. Thus, the way he does his part is believable.
