Technically though it means brother in law , It is mostly used to denote thickness of friendship between two male individuals

When one addresses another as "Aliya" that indicates that their friendship is very deeply rooted

Usage

Da purse eduthilla ... cashier'odu cash naale theram ennu paranjhaalo .... Ooh pinne Ninte "Aliyan"alle avide cash'il irrikkunathu

Dude i forgot to take my wallet .... shall we tell the restaurant cashier that we'll pay this later ..... Yeah right as if your "Aliyan" is maintaining the cash register
