“Lucknow Central – Outstanding Study Of Imprisonment & Freedom” – Subhash K Jha

Lucknow Central

Starring Farhan AkhtarGippy Grewal, Diana PentyDeepak DobriyalRajesh Sharma, Inamulhaq

Directed by Ranjit Tiwari

Rating: **** ½ (4 and a half stars)

“You don’t get justice in the world, you only get good luck or bad luck,” a wise old librarian (pronounced ‘lee-bray-nian’ by his Lucknowi singer-son) quotes Orson Welles.

Our good luck, then, that we get a prison drama as taut and thrilling, relevant and resonant as Lucknow Central right in the middle of  the year when things are looking bloody bleak in Bollywood.

Yes, there is hope. Lucknow Central is by far the most engaging thinking-man’s thriller of the year. Ballsy and brave, it penetrates  the politics of prison life without relinquishing the right to engage us in a solid storytelling spree where a clever cat-and-mouse game is played out between a sadistic jailor (Ronit Roy, in top form) and a non-guilty prisoner (Farhan Akhtar »

16 September 2017 2:05 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The life story of bollywood superstar Sanjay Dutt is an open book and the fans know all about him. But recently Farhan Akhtar revealed another side of Sanju Baba which made us admire him even more.

During a conversation with Sanket Bhosale for his show Baba Ki Chowki that airs on MTV Beats, Farhan recalled his visit to the Yerwada Jail. He had gone there to promote his upcoming film ‘Lucknow Central’. He shared, “The environment at Yerwada is very disciplined and neat. The emphasis on reform is very critical and they try and develop a skill in each inmate before they get released so as to build their self-belief. There is a small room in Yerwada where they have an in-house Radio Jockey. The inmates shared that Sanju used to spend a lot of time there and entertain everyone by singing and telling stories of positivity.” »
