Merry Christmas movie review

The Hindustan Times review of the film read, “I wouldn’t say Merry Christmas is predictable but if you’re extremely alert, follow the cues and pick nuances, there are quite a few easy giveaways about the big reveal. Also, don’t expect an overtly mind-boggling climax.”

It also added, “It’s out-of-the-box, yes. Or rather experimental, but it underwhelms. I expected more there. Not that it needed to be explanatory but something was amiss. Watch this Vijay Sethupathi and Katrina Kaif-starrer to appreciate good cinema, brilliant writing and enjoy an engaging watch that keep you on the edge on your seat, but you won’t really jump out of it on any big reveal or the climax.”
