Production: The Show People Cast: Aishwarya Lekshmi, Arya, Simran Direction: Sakthi Soundar Rajan Screenplay: Sakthi Soundar Rajan Story: Sakthi Soundar Rajan Music: D Imman Background score: D Imman Dialogues: Sakthi Soundar Rajan Distribution: Red Giant Movies

Captain is a film written and directed by Shakti Soundar Rajan and produced by The Show People and Think Studios. The film stars Arya in the lead role while Simran, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Kavya Shetty, Harish Uthaman and others play supporting roles. The music is composed by D Imman and the cinematography is handled by Yuva S.

Captain Vetri Selvan (Arya) is a soldier in the Indian Army. He and his team are assigned duty in Sector 42, a restricted forest area in North East India. They realise the presence of an extra-terrestrial creature in the area and are defeated by it as well. How they bounce back, defeat, and unravel the secrets about the creature forms the rest of the plot.

Director Shakti Soundar Rajan is credited with making a lot of 'first' films in Tamil. He made a zombie film, Miruthan, a space film - Tik Tik Tik. He also made Naaigal Jaakirathai and Teddy which has unique elements in it as well. With Captain, he has tried making a film on the Man vs Alien concept but the biggest issue here is that the writing is so generic.

Captain's plot and characters have some resemblance to his earlier films. The alien angle has also been treated like it's a horror film with plenty of jump scare like moments. For instance, whenever an important character turns away from the camera, the camera zooms into their face, and when they turn back at the camera, you see the alien pouncing on them.

There's a romantic angle between Arya and Aishwarya Lekshmi, but that never comes up in the film except the post climax scene. In a film that's just less than 2 hours long, portions like this make you feel the film is even longer. The screenplay has lags and the placement of songs doesn't help either.

Arya and his teammates in the army have worked well on their physique and look extremely fit. The performances could have been much better, the emotional scenes have a disconnect with the audience because of the limited range of expressions by the actors. Simran who plays the role of a scientist shines well, and makes the role look like a cakewalk.

D Imman's tries to breathe some life into the film with his background score which works well to an extent. The songs sound well when heard separately but slow down the film's pace heavily. While Yuva's cinematography is functional, offering the film what it exactly needs, the VFX could have been far better, especially the climax.

As a new attempt, Captain definitely deserves praise, but misses out on interesting screenplay and emotions. A lot of scenes are predictable because of which, when the twists are revealed they don't excite you enough affecting the engagement.

Verdict: Captain's concept is praise worthy, but misses to engage and interest overall.
