Lucknow Central Movie
Lucknow Central Movie: Music is the driving force behind the movie and the real story
Lucknow Central is another path breaking movie based on a real life incident from the Lucknow Central jail. Director Ranjit Tiwari found an interesting piece of article on the central jail in Lucknow. It was about rehabilitation of the prisoners. What Ranjit Tiwari liked about the rehabilitation process is that it was related to music. The then superintended of the prison allowed forming a band of prisoners. Ranjit was so impressed with the idea that he developed a story from that article.
How is story different from real incident?
The movie is inspired by a real life incident but it isn’t the exact copy of the incident. Director Ranjit Tiwari made an interesting story with his producer Nikil Advani. It is the story of a simple and honest but ambitious common man Kishen Mohan Girhotra (Farhan Akhtar). He belongs to Moradabad but lands in Lucknow Central for a murder charge. In the jail, he meets Gayatri Kashyap (Diana Penty) who happens to be working for a NGO. Gayatri inspires Kishen to form a music band. Kishen forms a band with his four inmates and then plans escape from the prison.
Some gossips about the Lucknow Central movie
• There are gossips about cost of costumes. Media reports say that the costume Farhan Akhtar is wearing costs only 5000 and some other costumes are as low as 100.
• Kirti Sanon was the first choice for Gayatri but she declined the offer citing her busy schedule as a reason but the media reports say that she left the movie because she doesn’t consider Farhan Akhtar a serious actor.
• Farhan Akhtar is playing role of a Bhojpuri boy and if media reports are to be believed then Farhan is one of the biggest fans of Manoj Tiwari films.
• Gippy Grewal is returning to Bollywood with Lucknow Central but the important thing is that Aamir Khan mentioned Gippy in a tweet about the movie. He sent his best wishes to all the team mentioning only Gippy.
Lucknow Central First Look & Poster
It poster has it all. The entire movie band and the group of jail inmates are seen in the poster. Farhan is standing second from left and they all are seeing upward. They are standing close to the main gate of the jail as if they are planning to leave that is the real twist in the story. One more thing about the poster is that it looks as simple as Farhan’s costume.

The movie is inspired by a real life incident but it is a story with an interesting end where the jail band tries to escape from the prison. The audiences could be with Farhan as he is wrongly sent to the jail.
