Lucknow Central Review
The story revolves around Kishan Mohan (Farhan Akhtar), an aspiring singer from Moradabad, who is falsely accused of murdering an IAS officer. His dreams of becoming a singer are shattered as he is facing a life term for the crime he never committed. Deprived of the freedom he rightfully deserves, the sun shines on him once again even in captivity, as a bunch of prisoners and an NGO worker (Diana Penty) become his voice and the wind beneath his wings. Can he accomplish his dream of forming a band in the prison or does he manage to escape the dungeon?
Based on true-life events, Lucknow Central is a feel-good, human, prison-break drama that succeeds in manipulating you emotionally, despite being predictable and filmy in portions. But do you remember we saw an exact story line a few weeks ago in Qaidi Band. Is this a filmi Ittefaq, or a sinister story swap?
