In Kerala, a kidnapping takes place, so Christie reached back in his home land.Meenakshi, the daughter of the Home Minister (Devan)is kidanapped and Christie reached to solve the disappearance.

Performances in Christian Brothers
Christian Brothers is in all way a Mohanlal Show. It has all the ingredients for the fans. Mohanlal excelled in the movie with his screen presence and the movie every and each time belongs to him and depends on him. The star looks younger in the film with the awesome dialogue delivery. Suresh Gopi as Joseph Vadakkan repeated his Twenty-20 acting here, but very good. He has some comic situations woth Dileep, all worked well. Dileep has few scenes, but when he is on the screen, hetakes the audience with his witty numbers. Sharath Kumar appeared in a cameo role, but got huge applause. Eventhough, he has only two scenes, his screen presence with the other super stars got clicked. Biju Menon again comes with a natural perfrmance. Sai kumar as the father of Christey, Vijayaraghavan as the enemy of him excelled.
The four heroines have nothing much to do. Kavya Madhvan has given more importance, then Kaniha, Lakshmi Rai and last Lakshmi Gopalswami. The whole story revolves around the kidnapping of Meenakshi(Kavya Madhavan). Lakshmi Rai only appeared in few song sequences. Jagathy comes with a neaty cameo appearance, while Suraj and Salim Kumar tries to take the audience with their funny numbers. Sai kumar as the father of Christie given a commendable performance. The other supporting casts also did their job well.
Songs and Music of Christian Brothers
Although the lyrics penned by Kaithapram are below average, Deepak Dev coming with three good songs. The heroines of the movie each appeared in the song, but didn't find them afterwards except in 1 or 2 scenes. But the songs tastes the smelt of some laetst Tamil and hindi songs. But they are really suits to the festival mood of the film.
