This will be the fourth collaboration of actors Dhanush and Kaali Venkat after Maari part one & two, and Kodi.
Earlier talking about Captain Miller to a leading media house, Arun Matheswaran stated, “Dhanush plays the titular role. But he will also be addressed with two other names. He has three different looks in the entertainer. 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 drama. 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.”
Captain Miller is touted to be a fast-paced action movie. It is said that the story of Captain Miller is set at the backdrop of the pre-independence epoch in the Madras Presidency between 1930 – 1940.
