After a powerful performance in Janakan, Mohanlal hit back the screen with his latest movie Alexander The Great and it's very sad and disappointing to find that the movie is a disappointing one. Directed by Murali Nagavally, the film bears an amateur script with a very common and old storyline.
Alexander The Great is inspired from the 1988 Hollywood movie Rain Man. Despite the script, the movie does not have anything much that catches the attention of the audience and is hardly interesting.
The movie has a storyline that tells about a family dispute over wealth. Prathapa Varma ( Saikumar ) is a rich businessman in Dubai. After his death his family came to know that the heir to all his wealth and fortunes was Alexander Varma ( Mohanlal ), who is his unlawful son. Reading Varma's will all his family gets enraged and Varma's son Manu ( Bala ) go in search of Alex to Mumbai. Alex at one sight is an 'abnormal 'person and behaves mostly like a kid. But he is a genius who can play with numbers. He is capable of by-hearting telephone numbers from a directory within hours and has an impeccable quizzing brain.
