The much-anticipated action film, Captain Miller, featuring Dhanush in a rugged avatar, was released ahead of Pongal 2024, marking the first collaboration between the acclaimed actor and director Arun Matheswaran.
The cinematic experience set in British India has not only captivated audiences but has also drawn comparisons to Hollywood-level action sequences.
Twitter has been buzzing with reviews from enthusiastic viewers who rushed to share their thoughts on Captain Miller. One X user exclaimed, “Just Watched Captain Miller… wow what a movie. Bunked my classes for the movie…” while another praised the film’s elements, stating, “Captain Miller entry, BGM, grander visuals, and as usual, the super performer Dhanush. Slowly setting the pace in the second half. If the streak continues – blockbuster on the cards.”
The film has been hailed as one of Dhanush’s best, with an X user expressing, “Easily the best of Dhanush. Amazing direction by Arun Matheswaran; scintillating music and pre-Independence sets were top-notch and technically well-made.”
A particular highlight mentioned by viewers was the ‘Interval chase sequence,’ described as “too good” and on par with Hollywood standards. One tweet read, “Captain Miller is a really good movie. Must watch. Another gem from Tamil cinema.
A very good story, screenplay, action-packed movie of Dhanush. This will be Dhanush’s biggest movie of his career.” Another viewer added, “Solid story and conflicts; characters are well-established; good dialogues and great visuals. Interval chase sequence was too good, on par with Hollywood standards, ends with a little twist. So far so good!”
Despite the overwhelmingly positive response, there was one dissenting opinion from an X user who shared a different perspective, stating, “2024 started with the worst US premiere experience for Captain Miller. Poor storytelling – no impact, miserably failed.
Nothing interesting. Most hyped and overrated director of Kollywood. Dhanush – never ever compare this guy with Vetrimaaran (Tamil film director).”
Captain Miller has made a remarkable impact on its audience, with Dhanush’s performance and the film’s technical brilliance earning widespread acclaim. The social media reviews serve as a testament to the movie’s success and its potential to become a blockbuster in Dhanush’s illustrious career.
