'Lucknow Central' trailer: Farhan Akhtar plots a prison break with his band of convicts

Thursday, July 27, 2017

The makers of 'Airlift' are geared up for another thriller inspired by true events, titled 'Lucknow Central'. The film starring Farhan Akhtar launched its first official trailer on Thursday morning, and it looks every bit intriguing.

The trailer follows the aspirations of a small town guy named Kishen, who dreams of forming his own band and becoming a noteworthy singer. However, fate has something else in store as he is charged with murder and sentenced to life imprisonment, at the Lucknow Central jail.

In jail, Kishen witnesses the harsh realities confined behind the four walls. While serving his sentence, he befriends a few fellow inmates and also begins plotting his escape. His prison break plan takes shape when he is presented with an opportunity to form a band with fellow inmates played by Deepak Dobriyal, Rajesh Sharma, Inaam Ul Haq and Rajesh Sharma. Diana Penty, on the other hand, plays the role of an NGO activist who lends a helping hand to Farhan and his team.

Whether or not Kishen was falsely accused and to see if he is indeed successful in breaking out of the jail, is something we will have to wait and watch when the film hits theatres on 15 September 2017.
