In his review for NDTV, Raja Sen writes: "The importance of a solid supporting cast cannot be overstated. Ranjit Tiwari's Lucknow Central, a film about prisoners who form a band - a surprisingly popular theme this season - can be called engaging only because it is populated by very good character actors." However, about the film's climax, he adds: "It feels like it's taking place in slow motion, and because these scenes are set to a musical performance in the backdrop, the scenes put us in a fresh hell where the Selfie Le Le song never bl**dy ends."
Lucknow Central is Farhan Akhtar's first movie after 2016's Rock On 2, which turned out to be a box office dud. Will Lucknow Central prove to be lucky for Farhan this time? Only box office figures will tell.
