In his review for NDTV, film critic Raja Sen gave Farhan's film 2 stars out of 5. "Any good escape film requires detailed plotting, however, and Lucknow Central is frequently stupid. The prisoners wanting to break out, to give you just one example, stash fake police uniforms in their drum set - even though their band doesn't ever play or practice with drums. The climax is so long and unending that it feels like it's taking place in slow motion. This is an unmemorable prison-break film but, because of some great supporting actors, Lucknow Central finds engaging moments." he wrote in the review.
Lucknow Central, directed by Ranjit Tiwari, also stars Gippy Grewal and Deepak Dobriyal. Meanwhile, Farhan Akhtar was last seen in a cameo in Arjun Rampal's Daddy, which released just last week.
