";s:4:"text";s:9939:" He manages to convince a few inmates, to join his band, but the real idea behind the move is much more dangerous and can lead to total devastation. The second half brings in some edge-of-the-seat moments leading to one of the two possible climaxes, making the end largely predictable. Like Prison Break, it never reaps the benefits of a promising start. Review by Shubhra Gupta on Indian Express. Regal When a lone tear drop slithers down her creaseless face, she could pass for a dainty damsel playing a human rights activist in a fancy dress competition.
How five jailed for life inmates come together (can't stop noticing the much clichéd - Hindu-Muslim-Sikh-Isai representation here) who want to take the opportunity of an inter jail singing competition to make an escape, posing as one of the competing bands.
The support cast saves the film from going totally wayward. Kya hoga bollywood ka..bhagwan hi bacheye ab bollywood ko. You can create your identity wherever you are. |
I would suggest not watching this movie if you already have watched Prison Break, otherwise it is a decent watch, One of the worst movie I have ever seen.

very emotional movie throughout and changes your outlook towards many actors.
Cinematographer Tushar Kanti Ray looks for corners and crevices in the human heart to shoot feelings behind prison walls. Thanks to Ravi Kishan and Dobriyal, Lucknow Central bring in some humour. This is a distant vision, but he believes small towns can’t crush a big dream. Coming Soon, Regal It would have been better if the same was conveyed along with the trailer as biographies have their own audience.
While the peg is somewhat similar (barring the undertrial element) to the recent Qaidi Band, Lucknow Central has a distinct execution and is way more evolved. The film doesn’t make any significant statements on the legal system or rehabilitation beyond tedious displays of violence or stray moments, like when the out-on-parole convicts realise they are unwelcome, unfit for the world that has moved on without them.

The director Ranjit Tiwari goes for old methods of filmmaking where the ‘dead’ hero used to return in the climax. Lucknow Central is a riveting tale of prisoners with an interesting premise and some sparkling performances but similarities with Qaidi Band will surely affect the film in every possible way. The so-called "supporting" cast becomes the spine - Inaamulhaq, Dobriyal and Sharma in fine fettle here. LucknowCentral has wonderful performances… However, the screenwriting appeals only in bits and spurts… Music doesn’t work either. Lucknow Central fails to utilise its resources, especially Diana Penty, and loses out on a chance to become a really engaging film. Any heroine could have pulled this role off.

A gripping prison break thriller with brilliant performances. Yes, there was some weird stuff like the way the band members become accomplished musicians in what is depicted to be a short time. Like Prison Break, it never reaps the benefits of a promising start. Ravi Kishan (Pawan Singh Chaturvedi) takes the film to another level with his cameo appearance. They won't be able to see your review if you only submit your rating. Director Ranjit Tiwari feels lost in translation with the kind of film he’s set out to make. It does eventually, and easily, with ludicrous twists and turns in the climax. He looks at ease and seems ready for verbal volleys even when there is no one around.
great screenplay . September 15, 2017 | Full Review….

Based on true life events, Lucknow Central is a feel-good, human, prison-break drama that succeeds to manipulate you emotionally, despite being predictable and filmy in portions.

Forgot your password? Lucknow Central fails to utilise its resources, especially Diana Penty, and loses out on a chance to become a really engaging film. The setup of the lead character’s fate of landing up in jail wrongly takes too much time and the film takes too long to get going.
So I was very excited to see this film and this film impresses on various levels. What makes a difference is the acting.
When your protagonist is wrongly cast, there is no saving grace left. The screenplay is not convoluted, but it’s not coherent either. He slips in “Taal Dadra” or “Taal Deepchandi” often, in case we forget his musical dreams.
Lucknow Central sucks is into its human drama.
Deepak Dobriyal, Imamulhaq, Rajesh Sharma and Gippy Grewal are a motley crew, and it’s a miracle they manage to crack a tune.
Kudos, if as many people in jail do not share false personalities!
Director: Ranjit Tiwari When will Bollywood learn the value of letting silence create drama?
It is the supporting cast which is spot on, especially Sharma and Dobriyal: is there anything the latter can’t do? But when it gets going and when the other side characters are introduced, Lucknow Central becomes engaging.
Other actors like Robin Das (Kishan’s father), Manav Vij, Virendra Saxena, Manoj Tiwari chip in with valuable support.
Of course the harmless temper and measured fervour of Lucknow Central’s key players insists they are not all bad.
External Reviews The jokes and gags are weak and the focus is more on creating a wave of sympathy for Kishan and his band rather than letting us feel for them organically.
While Qaidi Band was an unpolished, mostly clueless story of an attempted jail break, Lucknow Central has a better intensity. In one of the scenes, inmates thump their plates against the wooden table. It’s not just the theme, but the two projects bear uncanny resemblance on many levels.
crime, July 18, 2019 But all is well that ends well with a nice recreation of Monsoon Wedding’s ‘Kaavaan Kaavaan’ and Kishan stressing on the message of fostering sneha, samman, saath aur sangeet (love, respect, togetherness and music). “Heropanti Karega?” asks one of the many goons to our debut hero of the week. He is too South Mumbai to pass off as someone from Moradabad. You don’t need to drown everything with background music: that is certainly not jailhouse rock. Review by Renuka Vyavahare on The Times Of India.
Farhan Akhtar is a good actor but he's one dimensional. Verified reviews are considered more trustworthy by fellow moviegoers. The climax doesn’t work even though logically it should have worked. The rivalries between the factions in the prison have been effectively portrayed and the final escape scene has some tense moments.
The story of great escape of five prisoners from Lucknow Central jail is a decent watch because of the supporting cast. Must watch! Very disappointed of what I thought.
