Merry Christmas cast

Along with Sanjay Kapoor and Vinay Pathak, the film features important roles by Pari, Rajesh Williams, Vinay Babu, Sanmugaraja, Radhika Sarathkumar, and Tinnu Anand. Radhika Apte and Ashwini Kalsekar have also made special appearances in the movie. 

Although Merry Christmas has received positive reviews, its target market exclusivity makes it very challenging to become popular among everyone.

Merry Christmas has begun its theatrical voyage, amidst much scrutiny and expectation due to Katrina and Vijay's unconventional pairing. But while the first few days' earnings indicate a decent haul, the third day's revenues indicate that the movie is gradually becoming better thanks to positive word of mouth. But the movie's appeal is limited to a certain segment of the public, so it will be difficult to have a big impact. Let's wait and watch to see how the film navigates these dynamics in the future and whether will it be able to make it to its target audience eventually. 

Merry Christmas is directed by Sriram Raghavan, who is known for captivating thrillers that have consistently left his audience in awe.
