Understanding children is the greatest responsibility of parents. Memu, which is the dubbed version of Suriya’s Pasanga 2, makes one ponder over this statement.  Well, let’s know something more about this film. 


The happenings in a couple of children’s life form the crux of the movie. Two children prove to be a hindrance to the parents, the neighbors, and the school. When the children are taken to the doctor, it is found that they have Attention Deficit Disorder, which is quite common in children of today. The parents, who are very much annoyed and anguished by their behavior, leave them in the hostel. But these two little mischievous yet sensitive children are not able to cope up with hostel life, and long for the love of their parents. Here enters Suriya, who is a child psychiatrist. How he, his children, and his wife Amala Paul, create an impact in the lives of the children, and the parents form the rest of the film.

Star Performances

Nishesh and Baby Vaishnavi give stellar performances as the kids who are apparently problematic to everyone. Baby Vaishnavi especially steals our hearts in the climax scene. "Ramdoss", Karthik Kumar, Bindu Madhavi, and Vidya Pradeep do full justice to the role of the anguished parents. Suriya Sivakumar, who has also produced the film, should be applauded both for his acting and his stint with production; he has come forward to produce a film with a good message. Amala Paul is impressive in her extended cameo.


Director Pandiraj, who has earlier directed Pasanga, should be appreciated for dealing with the sensitive world of children. He has ably conveyed his message. The way in which he has stressed upon the pressure given to children deserves special mention. 

What’s there?

  • The script is outstanding.
  • The movie is a good blend of humor and sentiments.
  • Some of the dialogues hit the bull’s eyes.
  • Music of Arrol Corelli is commendable.

What’s not there?

  • Certain scenes go in the predictable lines. But this can be ignored given that the execution is good. 
  • Some of the scenes are highly emotional. 


It’s a great movie to be watched by family members together.
