MEMORIES is a Malayalam language thriller about a former cop who is struggling to cope after the murder of his wife and young daughter.


Although the story is about a serial killer, only moderate violence is shown as the killings take place off screen. When bodies are discovered, it is very discreet, and we are usually shown just the hands or dangling feet of victims rather than anything more detailed or gory.

Injury detail

Towards the end of the film, there are scenes where the killer is torturing a man he has kidnapped and we see some blood on the man's chest from several small cuts.

There is also some mild bad language, including 'damn', 'hell' and 'shit'.

Cuts information

Distributor chose to remove images of strong bloody violence, including blood spray from bullet impacts and a cut made with a scalpel to a man's chest, in order to achieve a 12A classification. An uncut 15 was available to the distributor. Cuts made in accordance with the BBFC's Guidelines and policy.
