Captain Miller: FDFS, Plot, Censor, Runtime, Cast & Crew, All You Need To Know

[Updated: January 12, 2023] The Black Tigers was an elite suicide commando unit of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), a Tamil militant/separatist organization in Sri Lanka, and the first suicide bomber of this squad - Vallipuram Vasanthan, was commonly known by the nom de guerre 'Miller' aka 'Captain Miller'.

While Captain Miller - the upcoming Tamil movie has nothing to do with him or the LTTE, actor Dhanush's titular character turns a rebel similar to how Vasanthan did in real life - after witnessing the suffering of his people at the hands of the establishment.
