 Memories is, as the tagline says, 'an episode in the life of a police officer. Prithviraj plays an alcoholic, irresponsible father cum policeman. The reasons for his erratic behaviors plus a murder mystery that he has to unravel due to circumstances forms the basic plot.

Memories is a serial killer typed murder mystery that begins slowly and gets you hoked on as the film progresses, just like last year's Grandmaster. Even the story is similar to that of GM, Police Officer no longer interested in his job gets drawn into the scene once again as the killer is on prowl.

 The intelligent scripting and interesting story line makes it a must watch movie, especially for the fans of thriller genre. The first half may be just above average, nut the second half is truly brilliant. Especially the climax.

Prithvi has done it again. fourth Hit in a row for him, after a lean patch. He is simply excellent as the full time drunkard cop. It is difficult to believe that he is the same guy who couldn't do such roles till recent past. This time he got it bang on ! Rest of the cast gets minimal scope, but have done their roles neatly. The choice of villain was good and surprising. background score and Editing helps the film a great deal. Camerawork looked ordinary at places, was ok otherwise.

on the flip side is the slow pace of the movie, especially in the first half. it takes time before the film gets into the grew. But intelligently the film has been publicized in that manner, brave but Good decision. Direction also looked ordinary. There are some small (negligible) plot holes.

Those who enjoyed film like Mumbai Police, grandmaster shouldn't miss this. its also a must watch for Prithvi fans.

Nice investigation thriller, Go for it

I’m From Tamil Nadu, I like Malayalam Movies very much, in contrast I heard many Malayalam people like VIJAY, AJITH, SURYA, ALLU ARJUN. Tollywood is completely opposite to molly wood, whereas kolly wood is mixture of both the tolly wood and molly wood. Movies Made by Malayalam Industries are heart warming and life oriented, where you can at least learn something for your Life. I wish People from Malayalam film industry release their movies in Tamil with subtitles so that it will reach wider audience. Because artistic work should reach more people in the world. I used to read all the Malayalam Cinema News, Mollywood News, Gossips
from this site, check it , would be useful.
