Farhan Akhtar’s musical drama Lucknow Central clashes with Kangana Ranaut’s Simran and Paresh Rawl-Rishi Kapoor comedy drama Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi this Friday. Lucknow Central makers showed their film on Sunday (special screening) and the film received positive responses. Many Bollywood celebrities to film analysts attended the event.
Lucknow Central is based on a real incident is leading by versatile actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar along with an ensemble star cast including Deepak Dobriyal, Gippy Grewal, Rajesh Sharma and Inaamulhaq are prisoners in Lucknow Central. Diana Penty is leading female but she is not among prisoners while hard working NGO member helps Kishan Mohan Girhotra aka Farhan Akhtar to create a successful band.
The movie is marked as Punjabi Star singer-actor Gippy Grewal’s debut in Bollywood, he is looking promising and all set to make huge debut after counterpart Diljit Dosanjh who won Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut for Udta Punjab (2016).
Farhan Akhtar needs a comeback because his last films Rock On 2 and Wazir failed to get success at Box Office in 2016. Wazir released in January 2016, collected around 79 Crore worldwide and received positive reviews but Rock On 2 is a disaster because its making was 40 Crore and this film failed to collect 15 Crore in India.
Last Friday releases Poster Boys, Daddy, and The Rally has no potential to affect Lucknow Central and Simran, so these film can open well. If celebrities’ reviews are to be believed, Lucknow Central is entertaining, unusual must watchable film can be a hit.
Kangana will also need a nice comeback film because she didn’t get much success after blockbuster Queen (2014). The actress was last seen in period romance drama Rangoon along with Shahid and Saif and their trio failed badly at Box office.
