Lucknow Central | Movie Review 

This prison break scenario compiled with drama in Lucknow Central very firmly manages to target the emotions of the audience and thus manipulate them in spite of being predictable in nature. Based on true events, Lucknow Central is subject to proper execution and is comparatively more progressive in nature than any other movie of a similar genre. The theme of ‘shinning through the darkest light’ plays extremely well as the plot of the Lucknow Central movie unfolds.

Farhan Akhtar’s efforts in portraying a small town guy are done right. The presence of Ravi Kishan and Deepak Dobriyal restore the fun element in the Lucknow Central movie. Gippy Grewal, Rajesh Sharma, Innamulhaq and Diana Penty justify their roles as well.

In all, the movie is a tale of people who refuse to give up on their dreams in life in spite of how harsh the circumstances around are, thus making it quite inspirational to many people out there.
