First things first; Kudos to Soundarya R Ashwin for fabricating India's first full length motion capture movie. Yes, the output was not great, but then, it's not fair to expect someone to hit the bull's-eye straightaway, is it?
Having said that, Kochadaiiyaan, starring superstar Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone in the lead, was a bad idea, for the director was overambitious in handling the technology.
Taking into consideration some of the best motion capture movies made so far, it can be deduced that the technology, which is available today, should be used in a formulaic manner.
Movies like Avatar and Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) used the same motion capture technology, not to portray the actors as they are, but to showcase fictional characters with the help of artists' facial expressions and movements.
In Kochadaiiyaan, Rajinikanth and other lead actors were portrayed as they are. Though their expressions and movements were captured in a decent manner, the entire movie looked like a video game with poor graphics because with today's motion capture technology it is almost impossible to make actors look like how they are in real life, on the big screen.
