Merry Christmas Critic Reviews & Ratings

There’s no point in watching a Sriram Raghavan movie without expecting sporadic flashbacks, film references, completely out-there characters, and an edge-of-the-seat experience.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-3.5/5
Intriguing, stimulating, gripping and gently challenging, Merry Christmas is everything you would want a thriller to be. It bewitches even when it baffles.

Sriram Raghavan’s Merry Christmas delivers what it promises — an aching mix of nostalgia and romance, intrigue and suspense.

  • India Today | Review By - Tushar Joshi | Rating-3.5/5
Merry Christmas is a terrific start to 2024 and a welcome break from the tailor-made cinema that feels repetitive.

  • Quint | Review By - Pratikshya Mishra | Rating-3.5/5
Sriram Raghavan’s Merry Christmas comes across as a hallmark movie with the colour and mood tone of a Hitchcockian thriller.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-4/5
Merry Christmas has a breathtaking climax that will have you sighing like you've never sighed in a Sriram Raghavan movie before

  • Scroll | Review By - Udita Jhunjhunwala | Rating-NA
The 144-minute film is steeped in Hitchcockian tones and a 1980s Hindi movie palate.

The film goes far and beyond, entering unchartered territories and immerses you in a world of deception, death and darkness.

  • The Hindu | Review By - Anuj Kumar | Rating-NA
The unlikely pair of Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi shine in this noirish tale of a long night where the crux is more engaging than the climax.

  • Firstpost | Review By - Lachmi Deb Roy | Rating-4/5
What makes the movie all the more attractive is the unhurried pace. Merry Christmas is undoubtedly a rare treat.

  • DNA | Review By - Abhimanyu Mathur | Rating-4/5
Merry Christmas is a well-crafted, if slightly imperfect film, made ever so watchable by its leads Vijay Sethupathi and Katrina Kaif.

Sriram Raghavan's Film is Exceptional, and Remarkably Moving.

MERRY CHRISTMAS is a well-made thriller and is laced with a fine performance by Vijay Sethupathi.

Overall Average Rating - 3.6/5
