The old age home in "Aliyammachiyude Aadyathe Christmas" is a vital hint to infer that a message is in the offing. The film explores the life of an old age home inmate Aliyamma, a wealthy old woman, who is discarded by her own children living abroad. KPAC Lalitha, undoubtedly, is the backbone of the movie. But while treating the subject, which has various dimensions, director Benny Asamsa forgets to give a specific structure to it.

Aliyamma's fantasy of seeing her deceased husband Eeppachan (Madhu) at his grave is the result of her desperation to find solace and care. She is happy in the company of the nun, Geo Mariam (Divya. S. Iyer), at the old age home. There are umpteen possibilities to take the plot forward in a riveting manner. Instead, the viewers are taken to intepid terrains to experience mishandled emotional scenes.

Lalitha excels in portraying the character albeit it's not a refreshing role. The intensity of her performance lends the movie a professional touch, which lacks in many parts. Thiruvananthapuram district Sub-Collector Divya. S. Iyer makes her debut in the film. Interestingly, Divya has given a convincing portrayal of the nun.
There is complexity in the personality of the nun. She is still haunted by her romance and past life. Her thoughts unravel the dilemma of her mind. This character is well conceived by the director, though he fumbles in the narration.

Benny has done the cinematography and editing of the film, apart from scripting it. As a whole, the process becomes a mishmash. The theme finds itself in the midst of uncertainties when the proceedings aim to convey a message. Moreover, lack of freshness amplify the fading of this tale.
