Shobaraj is a 1986 Malayalam film directed by Sasikumar and starring Mohanlal and Madhavi.[1][2][3] It is the remake of 1978 Hindi film Don starring Amitabh Bachchan which was later remade in Tamil as Billa starring Rajnikanth.[citation needed] But the story is slightly different from the other two films. Mohanlal acts in double roles.


Shobaraj (Mohanlal) is the leader of an underworld gang who in spite of being one of the most wanted on the list of Interpol, remains elusive to the police. Along with the police, He makes a few other enemies through his merciless approach to running his organization, especially when he kills one of his own men, Babu, when the latter decides to leave the business. This introduces Shobaraj to two new enemies, Julie, Babu's fiancee, and Nisha, Babu's sister. When Julie seduces Sobharaj and attempts to have the police arrest him, her plan backfires as Shobaraj outsmarts her and the police in his escape, and in the process, Julie is killed. A shattered, revenge-seeking Nisha gets trained in judo and karate, then enters Shobaraj's gang after eceiving them into thinking that she too is on the wrong side of the law. Shobaraj is impressed with her fighting skills and allows her to work for him, without realizing her true intentions. Meanwhile, after a couple of unsuccessful attempts at nabbing Shobaraj but unbeknownst to her, the Deputy Superintendent of Police (K.P Ummer) is tracking down Shobaraj and in one of their confrontations the DSP wounds Shobaraj, resulting in his death. The DSP then secretly holds a burying of Shobaraj. After which the DSP remembers a person 'Dharmaraj' (Mohanlal) who looks like Shobaraj, Who's really is Shobaraj's blood brother, who were separated when they were small. DSP then tracks that person down.He requests Raj to impersonates Shobaraj so that the DSP can take down the rest of Shobaraj's gang, Raj requests that the DSP promises him that he will give a proper education to the children that he is looking after. But in an unexpected turn of events the DSP dies. The DSP is the only one who knows the truth about the impersonator who now finds himself in a life-threatening situation - hunted by both the cops and the real Shobaraj's henchmen and to make matters worse, he then finds out that Interpol Officer is a crook and has taken the place of the real person. He is the one responsible for the DSP's murder. It's now a race to retrieve the DSP's diary in which the DSP has documented his substitution of the real Shobaraj.
