Lucknow Central – the story of a small town boy Kishan Mohan Girhotra (Farhan Akhtar) who dreams to become a famous singer, but somehow his fate lands him in Lucknow Central jail with murder charges. Every bit of the real life inspired thriller’s trailer is catchy and promises an intriguing movie watch.
The trailer starts with a subtle story of an underdog singer who wishes to make his own band, but the story manoeuvres to an intense level after Kishan lands in jail and plans for an escape. The fast flash two and half minutes long trailer leaves with a question of whether Kishan was charged for something he didn’t do? Did he escape the prison? If he did, how? And what about his dream of making his own band? For starters, the trailer has left us with so many questions and has rose anticipation of finding answers to them – so the trailer has done its job. It also leaves us wondering if this is the prison escape movie Bollywood is looking for.
Talking about the movie cast, with actors like Farhan Akhtar, Deepak Dobriyal, Rajesh Sharma, Ronit Roy and Diana Penty in one movie, half of your work to impress the audience is done. Farhan has once again proved how talented he is and how closely he can get into the skin of any character. Directed by Ranjit Tiwari and Nikkhil Advani, the film is based on real life events and it may be intense but nothing makes it boring, not at least from what the trailer looks like.
Prior to the trailer, two posters were released by the makers of film and they have also adopted a new strategy to promote the film through viral campaign #KishenNirdoshHai that piqued the interest of internet users. Several videos and memes claiming Kishen’s nirdoshi were floating around the internet, were later revealed to be a part of Lucknow Central’s marketing campaign. This movie seems to have a great impact on the box office and for answers to our question, we will have to wait till September 15, 2017 and watch the movie ourselves.
