Merry Christmas promises a spooky love story of two strangers

The trailer begins with the premise of two people in Mumbai meeting on the eve of Christmas eve, instantly hitting it off. However, just when things begin to feel too rosy and hunky dory, the trailer introduces a new character who seems to have some connection with the female protagonist’s past.

From that point onwards, the trailer takes on a grandiose, overwhelming shape, underlined by a spooky-sound version of the otherwise cheery ‘Wish you a Merry Christmas’ song. The trailer doesn’t give much way, and yet builds enough tension and intrigue around the identity of its past.

Besides Kaif and Sethupathy, Merry Christmas features stellar actors like Radhika Apte, Vinay Pathak, Tinnu Anand, Pratima Kanan and Ashwini Kalsekar. All these actors have earlier been part of Sriram Raghavan movies like Badlaapur and Andhadhun. Sriram Raghavan’s previous movie Andhadhun, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Tabu and Radhika Apte in leading roles, had released in October 2018 and was a surprise box office success.
