Prathapa Verma, a wealthy man in Dubai who has a son Manu (Bala) but also has an adulterous relationship with a lady in Mumbai, Janet, with whom he has another son named Alexander (Mohanlal). In his will, he has bequeathed all his wealth to his son Alexander. If Alexander dies, then 40% of Prathapa Verma's wealth will go to his relatives (Siddique, K. B. Ganesh Kumar, etc.) and 30% goes to Manu, and 30% to a trust. If Manu dies, then 100% will go to the trust. So the relatives decide to kill him, while Manu decides to go and meet Alexander and take a power of attorney from him so that he can get all Verma's wealth, and then kill him or get rid of Alexander. But to their surprise, Alexander is in mental rehabilitation center under the treatment of Dr. Korah (Nedumudi Venu). Over a period of time, Manu realizes that his brother has unique abilities, which he grows to accept. He starts becoming fond of his half-brother.
