Story teller Arun Matheswaran of Saani Kaayidham fame has written and directed the flick. Writer Madhan Karky has penned dialogues for the project. The entertainer which went on floors last year in Tirunelveli has been shot in the forest regions of Tenkasi district. The shoot for the film is now wrapped. The flick is in the post production stage getting refined for release. 

Actor Dhanush recently celebrated his birthday. Taking to the special occasion the production unit shared the teaser of the drama on social media.

Love you Na. Here’s the teaser of Captain Miller. From the mad mind of dear Arun Matheswaran. Sathya Jyothi Films & the magic of G. V. Prakash Kumar.” Here is the tweet made by the actor. 

One and a half minutes long teaser cut opens to a wanted poster of Miller. Then cuts to a raging battle field. The trailer gives us a few glimpses of the hard-fought battle to attain India’s independence. Captain Miller will be in theaters on 15th of December this year. The production team has plans to release the movie as a pan Indian flick in multiple languages including Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi. Captain Miller is billed as a fast-paced action flick. The film is set at the backdrop of the pre-independence epoch in the Madras Presidency between 1930 – 1940. 

Earlier speaking to a leading media house about Captain Miller, director Arun Matheswaran revealed, “Dhanush plays the titular role. But he will also be addressed with two other names. He has three different looks in the movie. I am sure his fans will love watching him in Captain Miller. The central character of Captain Miller was shaped with an intention to make a high-octane action film. The story was not written for a specific actor. But I felt that actor Dhanush would be perfect to portray the role. Personally, I like how he balances between being a popular star and a terrific performer. Captain Miller explores a life journey of over 15 years of its central character. There are a wide range of emotions and the transition part of a person’s life to be portrayed convincingly. I felt Dhanush would be able to do it perfectly.” 

Beside actors Dhanush, and Priyanka Mohan, the casting department of Captain Miller has actors Shiva Rajkumar, Sundeep Kishan, John Kokken, Edward Sonnenblick, Nivedhithaa Sathish, Vinoth Kishan, Elango Kumaravel, Nassar, Viji Chandrasekhar, Merku Thodarchi Malai Antony, Bala Saravanan, Sumesh Moor, and Swayam Siddha depicting various other supporting roles.

Editor Nagooran Ramachandran has been brought on board to trim the movie. Art director T Ramalingam has designed the background for the project. Action director Dhilip Subbarayan has choreographed action block for the venture. The movie is produced by T. G. Sendhil Thyagarajan along with Arjun Thyagarajan for the production company Sathya Jyothi Films.
