Captain Miller Critic Reviews & Ratings

Captain Miller gives the old Hollywood vibe in some scenes - a composition you find in classic films.

There's not even a single moment in the entire 160 minutes of runtime where Arun Matheshwaran's script meanders.

  • The Hindu | Review By - Gopinath Rajendran | Rating-NA
Despite a few shortcomings, ‘Captain Miller’ is a huge step up for Arun Matheswaran — whose style and socio-political takes need more praise — and is yet another feather to Dhanush’s much-adorned cap.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-3.5/5
Arun Matheswaran’s pre-Independence era drama Captain Miller is a superbly crafted yarn through which runs a thick skein of guilt.

Hard-hitting tale about oppression and freedom. With terrific performances and GV Prakash’s music, the film is a brilliant watch in theatres.

The bottomline is that Captain Miller is a highly-engaging - but different - must-watch film this Sankranti.

  • Firstpost | Review By - Priyanka Sundar | Rating-4/5
The visuals of Captain Miller are sharp, and extremely supporting of the narrative.

Captain Miller gets off to a terrific start with a flawlessly paced first half and a stellar performance from its lead that lacerates your heart.

  • Rediff | Review By - Divya Nair | Rating-3/5
When you leave the cinema hall, what stays with you is the message of inclusion and the need to stand up for your freedom.

  • DNA | Review By - Simran Singh | Rating-4/5
With Captain Miller, Dhanush hits it out of the park. He carries the film on his talented shoulders and makes sure to give you an unforgettable experience.

The film flows as rhythmically as a river, leaving our minds brimmed with some of the most stunning images we’ve seen all year.

  • OTT Play | Review By - Manoj Kumar R | Rating-3.5/5
Dhanush infuses the narrative with a wild energy channeling the pain and trauma of Analeesan and Captain Miller into every fiber of his performance.

  • South First | Review By - Shashiprasad SM | Rating-3/5
