Vignesh Shivan praised the film highly and wrote, "Absolutely awestruck by the outstanding performances from @actorvijaysethupathi and @katrinakaif in this superbly written thrilling screenplay from the genius @sriram.raghavanofficial takes us back to Alfred Hitchcock times. @ipritamofficial's music is another major pillar, and the last 30 minutes are just too good! Enjoy it in theaters from January 12th! I am totally proud of you, Makkal Selvan. Vijay Sethupathi! You just held it all together with effortless ease."

Along with that, trade analyst Sathish Kumar watched the film and called it a vintage thriller with interesting scenes in a police station in the second half.

The film is shot simultaneously in two languages: Hindi and Tamil. The major difference between the two versions is the supporting actors, who are different for the Hindi version and the Tamil version. Along with that, it is also speculated that the film's ending is designed differently for the Tamil and Hindi versions, keeping in mind the sensibilities of the respective audiences.

There are others as well who saw the film and liked it for what it is. A user on Twitter wrote, "#Merry Christmas is a slow-burning mystery drama that takes its own time to setup, builds to a crescendo, and then pays off in the final act. The last 15 minutes are the film, but for it to work, you need to invest in the first 1.5 hours. You might wonder where this is all leading to, but only in the final act do you get to know Sriram Raghavan was holding all the cards till the end."

Another user observed, "Vijay Sethupathi and Katrina Kaif completely held and shouldered the first half of #MerryChristmas, which led to the riveting second half. Peak chemistry."

Merry Christmas releases in theaters on January 12, 2024.
