Big B (stylized short form of Big Brother) is a 2007 Indian Malayalam-language action-thriller film co-written and directed by Amal Neerad, starring Mammootty in the title role. The cinematography was done by Samir Thahir, and the songs were composed by Alphons Joseph and background score was composed by Gopi Sundar. The film is an unofficial remake of Hollywood crime thriller Four Brothers starring Mark Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, André Benjamin, and Garrett Hedlund

The film is considered as one of the Cult Classics in Malayalam cinema.[by whom?][citation needed] The film when released wasn't well noticed. Its theme and style of making was new to the malayali audience at that time, though it became one of the hits in 2007. But when the film's DVD was released, it received numerous appreciation from the audience. Mammooty received great appreciation for his performance as Bilal John Kurishinkal and there were a lot of followers for this character.[1]


The story begins with the cold-blooded murder of Mary John Kurishingal (Nafisa Ali). Her adopted sons arrive for her funeral from various places; Bilal John Kurishingal -a gangster (Mammootty), Eddy John kurishingal-hotel owner(Manoj K Jayan), Murugan John Kurishingal- film stunt master(Bala) and Bijo -a student(Sumit Naval). The four brothers take it upon themselves to unearth the mystery behind their mother's murder. Bilal starts meeting his old friends and contacts in the Kochi underworld to get information on the killers. Little by little, they piece the evidence and find out that the murder was committed by two professional 'hitmen' from Mumbai. The ACP Balaji Shakthivel (Pasupathy) who is an upright cop, put in charge of investigations, tries his level best but cannot fetch any evidence to prove anything related. They soon find out that the murder was one of the many meticulously planned operations, aimed to check the teacher's intrusions into unlawful exporting of children from Kochi. As the Mayor (Ramesh Varma) and his henchman, an underworld don called Saiyuppu Tony (Sherveer Vakil) are involved, the brothers decide to take up arms to avenge their mother. How they accomplish their revenge forms the rest of the story.



The film released on 13 April 2007. [3][4]
