Lucknow Central (2017)
(Released: Sep 15, 2017)
The film starts off with a day in the life of the Moradabad based Kishan Mohan(Farhan Akhtar). In order to achieve his dream of forming a band, he records a demo CD in order to hand it over to a topmost singer(Manoj Tiwari), but, his efforts go in total vain. One day, out of the blue, cops arrest him and put him in Lucknow Central jail on the charges of murdering an IAS officer. Even in the jail, the restless Kishan yearns of forming his own band. On the occasion of Independence Day, Minister Pawan Singh Chaturvedi(Ravi Kishan) decides to have an inter-jail music competition.
Even though Kishan faces stiff opposition and resistance from Raja Shrivastava(Ronit Roy), help and confidence come in the form of NGO activist Gayatri Kashyap(Diana Penty). The inmates who form Kishan's band members include Parminder Gill(Gippy Grewal), Victor Chattopadhyay(Deepak Dobriyal), Purushottam Madan Pandit(Rajesh Sharma) and Dikkat Ansari(Inaamulhaq). It is during the band's practice that Kishan reveals the master plan of doing a jailbreak on the D-Day. But, when the moment arrives, all of them back out. What's the reason for them to refuse freedom, do they get caught by the ruthless Raja Shrivastav or do they have a change of heart and what ultimately happens to their band and their lives is what forms the rest of the film.
