Bollywood and its fixation with prisons and the life of inmates has been continuing for decades now. Yet the way new directors are experimenting with this concept is something to look forward to. Recently, we came across Yash Raj Films' ‘Qaidi Band' starring Aadar Jain and Anya Singh. The movie talks about a bunch of innocent undertrials who form an orchestra inside the jail. But, will their story be similar to Kishen Mohan Girhotra's fight for freedom? For those wondering who is Kishen, he is none other than our Bollywood's rockstar Farhan Akhtar who will play a jail inmate in the upcoming movie ‘Lucknow Central'. The trailer of this much-anticipated film is out and by the looks of it, audience can expect something new and different from this movie. Farhan sheds his rockstar-on-stage avatar but does not lose his musical connect and that's one of the reasons why we are eagerly awaiting this film.

The story plot is simple yet intriguing. Akhtar plays an aspiring singer from Moradabad, who gets accused of murder and ends up in Lucknow Central Jail awaiting trial for a death penalty. While in jail, he crosses paths with Diana Penty, who plays an NGO worker and wants to form a Band of Prisoners for a band competition. Farhan befriends 4 other inmates and thus ensues their struggle to break free from prison. How the protagonist's life progresses inside the jail premises and how music comes to their aid weaves the rest of the plot. Farhan Akhtar looks really convincing as the small town boy who is falsely accused of murder and although we couldn't figure out much about Diana Penty's character, she will definitely be someone to look forward to.  The surprise element was actor Ronit Roy who within the first few seconds won our hearts with his badassery.

The movie also stars Gippy Grewal, Deepak Dobriyal, Ravi Kishan and Rajesh Sharma among others and is slated to release on 15th September, 2017.
