Merry Christmas failed to bring a significant surge in collections!

The highly anticipated film Merry Christmas, featuring the dynamic duo of Vijay Sethupathi and Katrina Kaif, hit the silver screens on 12th January, creating quite a stir in the film industry. Directed by the acclaimed Sriram Raghavan, whose previous masterpiece Andhadhun left audiences in awe, this movie had everyone buzzing with excitement, thanks to its unique casting and intriguing promotional material.

As the curtains lifted, Merry Christmas received applause from critics and viewers alike, setting the stage for a promising run at the box office. The film made a strong 2Cr opening and continued to gather momentum with a collection of around 3Cr on Saturday. However, the weekend didn’t quite end on a high note, as Sunday failed to bring a significant surge in collections. Ultimately, the overall weekend collections settled at an average of 8Cr+ net.

The real litmus test for the film came on Monday, where it encountered a sharp decline, managing only around Rs 1 crore in collections. As a result, Merry Christmas is projected to conclude its run in the 15Cr range net, marking a disappointing outcome.

Even with positive reviews and high expectations, Merry Christmas struggled to make its mark, especially in the Tamil market, where it faced tough competition from other releases. Despite Vijay Sethupathi’s star power, the audience’s attention seemed to be drawn towards other compelling films.

Featuring an ensemble cast including Sanjay Kapoor, Tinnu Anand, Vinay Pathak, Pratima Kazmi, Radhika Apte, and Ashwini Kalsekar, Merry Christmas is a mystery thriller set in a bygone era against the backdrop of Mumbai.

While the film may not have soared as high as anticipated, the talent and effort behind it cannot be denied. Stay tuned to the Moviezupp page for more updates, and keep supporting the incredible work of these talented artists!
