Big B begins with the murder of Mary Teacher, who has been a messiah for orphans. Mary John Kurishinkal, lovingly called Mary Teacher and Teacher Amma by many, is murdered on the street at night by some professional murderers. A young boy accidentally shoots this on his handy cam. Mary Teacher has been looking after lots of orphans, but she had brought up four such orphans as her own adopted sons. They are - Bilal, Eddie, Murugan and Bijo. While Eddie and Bijo live in Kochi itself, Murugan is a stunt-director in films and is always traveling. Bilal, the eldest, had left Kochi a couple of years back after being involved in a stabbing incident, following which Mary Teacher had refused to let him enter the house...
Mohanlal is Shivaraman, a once-brilliant advocate who now seems to be on a self-destructive mode. Almost al the time you're bound to find him in a highly intoxicated state. His clients had abandoned him a long time ago. But he has a very devout follower in Chaandy Kunhu, played by Jagadi Shreekumar. Whenever Shivaraman gets into one of his drunken brawls, it is Chaandy who rescues him. Strangely, that doesn't diminish Shivaraman's public relation skills. After one particularly bad fight, he ends up becoming good buddies with three notorious rowdies in the area- Vadakkanchery Vakkan, Batherry Babu and Pattambi Ravi, played respectively by Spatikam George, Bheeman Raghu and Kirikadan Jose. Soon, they too join his gang of loyalists...
