Movie Review by PS
Arjun (Rating : 4/5)
Plot: An alcoholic police officer, who is living in his unforgettable memories, off-duty is called back to investigate a kind of serial killings happening in Kerala. Memories is a story about human emotions. It is about memories and present life of two people, which goes through various emotions like love, respect, ego, loneliness etc. And these emotions are mixed well to make this suspense thriller. The film impresses right from the title card and delivers quite brilliant on many levels.
Prithviraj delivers another great performance. Ayaalum Njanum Thammil, Celluloid, Mumbai Police and Memories! What a great time this guy is having. Look at the variations this guy is showing in each of his movies. Amazing. An actor, Malayalam industry can proudly present in national level. Another notable performance is by Sreekumar. Unexpected. You will see more from this good actor sooner or later. Within the small time frame, he gives a memorable performance. Wish he gets more of such characters which have wide range to perform.
The script is more suitable for English language mainly because Malayalam industry is not used to such stories but for everything there should be a beginning. This is it. The script might not look convincing for everybody especially the past of the negative character, but the presentation is in such a way that you are not going to think about anything more or less but only those things which the makers want you to think. Brilliant direction. Jithu Joseph deserves a salute. Few fantastic and memorable scenes prove that Jithu Jospeh can do wonders if given the opportunity to showcase his skills and freedom. Another thing which is so impressive is the camera work. There are many shots which make us wonder where the camera is placed and how it is moved. Brilliant. Then the background score! It is top class. All these things works so well that it evokes thrill now and then.
What could have been better!
* Performance of supporting actors.
What works well!
* Everything else.
It was an enormous pleasure to see a movie like this in Malayalam, which is intelligently written and presented. Very well done, the movie keeps viewer interested throughout. This is not a usual bang bang, bhoom bhoom police story, but a different one. Overall, a great film, with a neat plot, interesting settings and thrilling atmosphere.
