In the two minute long video, users can see children dressed in red t-shirt and black trouser dancing to the drum beats and the carol, while a group of semi bare bodied men play a local drum in synchronization.

A user named Ajith Ajith, commented on the video, “Jingle bells backed by sinkari Melam is simply an amazing concept. Awesome. And the kids move to the rhythm like daffodils dancing to the wind. Kudos to the whole team.”

Another user named Gokul TG wrote, “Christmas is a time of joy... With every family united and celebrating the love and unity among us... And we celebrate it not as individuals nor as a nation but as a human family. Hats off to the entire crew who gave their time and effort to make this video.. You guys did a wonderful job!”
