- How to Watch the Merry Christmas Movie
The Merry Christmas movie got positive reviews from audiences and critics. Over 17k people rated this movie 8.8 stars out of 10 stars on IMDb, which are good reviews from audiences. Tushar Joshi from India Today rated this movie 3.5 stars out of 5 stars and said “‘Merry Christmas’ is a terrific start to 2024 and a welcome break from the tailor-made cinema that feels repetitive. Vijay Sethupathi and Katrina Kaif’s pairing is the ace of spade that makes the film a sure-shot winner.“
Roopa Radhakrishnan from The Times of India rated this movie 3.5 stars out of 5 stars and said “In a scene in the film, one character tells another that there’s no point in watching a movie without popcorn. Similarly, 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. All of this is also applicable for Merry Christmas, but in a quieter and lighter fashion.“
Saibal Chatterjee from NDTV rated this movie 3.5 stars out of 5 stars and said “Intriguing, stimulating, gripping and gently challenging, Merry Christmas is everything you would want a thriller to be. It bewitches even when it baffles.“
Lachmi Deb Roy from First Post rated this movie 4 stars out of 5 stars and said “The movie is sure to make you feel nostalgic, especially for all Bombay lovers, especially the Regal cinema hall, the lanes of Colaba and old houses with beautiful architecture. What makes the movie all the more attractive is the unhurried pace. Merry Christmas is undoubtedly a rare treat.“
