The movie “Captain” in which Tamil actor Arya acted as the protagonist. Directed by Sakthi Soundar Rajan, who is a specialist in freemaking Hollywood films in Kollywood, this film has been released simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu languages. And let’s see how this scientific thriller is..!!
Story: An army group is brutally murdered in Sector 42 near the Himalayas. The Indian Army appoints a special team to find out who did the murder. How did Captain Vijay Kumar (Arya) and his team accomplish this mission? is the story of “Captain”.
Performance of the actors: After the amazing movies like “Sarpatta Parampara” Arya starrer, “Captain” has good expectations. However.. Arya as an actor could not get into the role of captain. Graphics & CG work can also be attributed to that. Harish Uttaman entertains in a supporting role. Aishwarya Lakshmi felt no problem in a special role. Even if Simran gets a good role, no one will connect much with the role as there is no proper justification for the role.
Technical performance: CG work is the biggest minus of the movie. Although the idea of showing the alien creature as cruel is good, its execution is terrible. The CG work in many scenes is also annoying. While D. Imman’s songs and background music is average, the camera work is very difficult due to the cheap CG work. The less said about the production design & art work the better.
Shakti Soundar Rajan, who has already failed several times in Indianizing Hollywood movies, has also made a fool of himself with “Captain”. This cheap version will not appeal to the audience who have already seen movies like “Alien vs. Predator, Prey”. Even if you don’t watch those hollywood movies.. this movie fails to impress even the average audience due to poor CG work & screenplay.
Analysis: Unless you are used to watching Hollywood action movies and have the patience to watch very low level CG work, it will be difficult to watch “Captain” in theaters.
