    Merry Christmas movie Review: Vijay Sethupathi and Katrina Kaif are dull in the world of Sriram Raghavan

    In the realm of Indian cinema, Sriram Raghavan is a name synonymous with gripping narratives, intense storytelling, and unconventional characters. However, his latest venture, “Merry Christmas,” featuring Bollywood diva Katrina Kaif and versatile actor Vijay Sethupathi, falls short of the high expectations associated with the acclaimed director. Despite the stellar cast, the film struggles to find its footing, leaving audiences yearning for the magic that has defined Raghavan’s previous works.

    Movie Ratings: 1.5/5 Stars

    One of the major drawbacks of the film is the lackluster performance from the lead pair. While Katrina Kaif is known for her charisma and on-screen presence, her portrayal of Maria Kumar feels one-dimensional and fails to evoke the emotional depth required for the character. Vijay Sethupathi, acclaimed for his nuanced performances, also falls short in delivering the intensity needed for Albert Ramesh’s character. The chemistry between the two leads is lackluster, further weakening the film’s emotional core.

    Sriram Raghavan’s signature style is evident in “Merry Christmas,” with the film attempting to weave a complex narrative filled with unexpected twists and turns. However, the screenplay falters in maintaining a cohesive and engaging storyline. The pacing of the film feels uneven, leaving the audience disconnected from the characters’ journey.

    While Raghavan’s previous works, such as “Andhadhun” and “Badlapur,” showcased his mastery in crafting gripping narratives, “Merry Christmas” seems to miss the mark. The screenplay struggles to balance the suspense and character development, resulting in a film that feels more like a puzzle with missing pieces than a seamless storytelling experience.
