According to cinemas, the film has got a mixed response.15 Crores budget Christian Brothers is the story of Captain Verghese Mappilai (Saikumar) has two sons and two daughters. The elder son Christie (Mohanlal) is in Mumbai, with lots of underworld connection. The younger one (Joji) is abroad; his father had sent him to become trained for priesthood, but now he has fallen in love with a girl named Meenakshi (Kavya Madhavan) and has left the seminary. It’s when Meenakshi, who reaches Kerala and whose father (Devan) is the Home Minister, is kidnapped and a huge amount demanded as ransom that Christie is called in. Christie is now said to be a high-profile police informer and he is brought in to save Meenakshi. He does that, quite easily, but very soon he himself is arrested, on charges of murder. It’s the very daring and upright police officer Joseph Vadakkan (Suresh Gopi) who is up in arms against him. Then enters Andrews (Sarath Kumar) from Mumbai, who has a purpose behind his arrival.
Into this is woven the story of the villainous Kumaran Thampy (Vijayaraghavan) and his equally villainous sons and son-in-law, who are all against Verghese Mappilai and family for some other reasons. It’s action, drama, sentiments all moving on to a predictable climax.
