Alexander the Great is a Malayalam film released in May 2010. The film is directed by Murali Nagavalli, scripted by C. Balu,[1][2][3] and stars Mohanlal, Bala, Kirron Kher and Aswathy. It is different from most films in that the main character, played by Mohanlal, has no heroine counterpart for his role.[4][5] It is described by the director as a "comical racy entertainer".[1]The film is a partial adaptation of the Hollywood film Rain Man.


Saikumar plays the role of Prathapa Verma, a rich man in Dubai who has a son Manu (Bala) but also has an adulterous relation 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 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). Eventually, over time, Manu realizes that his brother has unique abilities, which he grows to accept. He starts becoming fond of his half-brother. The story then progresses to show how Manu brings Alexander to Dubai. After reaching Dubai, the struggles that Alexander faces form the rest of the story.
