If you are an avid movie aficionado, then you would realize how "Memories" loosely relates to some of the Hollywood & Bollywood mysteries. But apart from that, it was real pleasure to watch Prithviraj as the protagonist of the film, which ended quite disastrously.

Jeethu Joseph is known to remake films (e.g.: My Boss). Memories is faintly like that, but if you ask me questions, I'm gonna babble. Cutting to the story, it talks about how a policeman comes out of blues to investigate serial killings. His intentions are plain as white. Vijay Raghavan & Suresh Krishna are great and together with the lead character, they manage to pull off some humor, drama, thriller & of course, suspense.

The first 20 minutes is establishment period. Next 90 minutes are pure pieces of top-notch thriller, although borrowed from few classics/flops (e.g. Dhoom 2, Grand-master). As he achieves breakthrough, the killer's intentions are unfolded & that is what makes it more interesting. The melodrama involved in the climax sequence is typical Malayalam cliché and was totally unnecessary, which should mean it drags to 2 hours 20 minutes.

But, alas! there is one big plot-hole about the killer on how he goes on to become what he actually is. Also, the makers fail to mention few points in the first half. Cinematography is stupendous, so are the music, songs, direction & rendering. Thank goodness there's no superhero machismo here & that further helps.

BOTTOM LINE: Recommended! Just because it is a glib doesn't mean it is a bad thriller. Had the climax been justified, I'd have rated it a pure 8. But this is 6.9/10. Probably a good film of 2013.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES

Profanity/Vulgarity/Nudity/Sex: No | Alcohol: Critical | Smoking/Drugs: No | Violence/Gore: Very Strong
