Use cases are often primary source of documents for functional requirements.
Is there any alternate approach we can adopt to capture functionalilty ?

Yes. User Stories with Conversations and Confirmations.

I like to say if a story is a "promise to have a conversation" a use case is the "record of the conversation."
We used to build big use cases up front. Now we build use cases one story at a time. The end documents look exactly the same.
