It is later revealed that Boss killed Adithya.
If you are careful and connect the dots, then most of the secret is given very cleverly in the movie’s first scene.
Later it is revealed why Boss is so adamant about harming Prathapa in his past.
When he goes to a house where a man named Ayyanar, his brother woke up, Boss’ real name is Devan, and he used to live with his large family. He and his brother tried to convince the family of Ponnkhuzali, whom their cousin brother wanted to marry. The family’s refusal on the grounds of caste differences caused Devan and Ayyanar to fight the girl’s father, Rangan. Things worsened when Devan had to go to Chennai, and Rengan, with Prathapa and Felix’s help, takes revenge on
Devan’s family by killing them all and crippling Ayyanar for life.
After connecting the dots, it is answered why Prathapa would often wonder if Boss was part of something in the past. Boss made Prathapa the character of his movie to bring justice to his dead family and brother.

Boss is a treat to all Mammotty’s fans who look forward to see him in thriller movies online.
