Lucknow Central Film Review: Farhan Akhtar Found A Great Subject, But…
Lucknow Central Film Review
Story: A small town guy (Kishan) has big dreams. But his activities land him in jail. However, Kishan refuses to give up his dreams and decided to take help from fellow jail mates. His plan is dangerous, but Kishan does not care. Will Kishan succeed?
Acting: Farhan Akhtar is a good actor, but he is too urban to play a character like Kishan. Farhan is polished, sophisticated, in real life, so his Kishan act kind of comes across as fake. Ronit Roy is good.
Direction: Ranjit Tiwari picked a relatively interesting subject and he tried to make a good film. But his film is too slow, the story gets really boring during second half and you just want film to end.
Overall rating: Lucknow Central is not for everyone, and you may not like this film if you only enjoy typical Bollywood entertainment.
