Lucknow Central box office collection day 1– Albeit, the film is released on this Friday, it has been facing a stiff competition from Kangana Ranaut’s Simran. Lucknow Central is one day old film now and has collected Rs 2.04 crore so far.
Well, this is what Taran Adarsh has tweeted. As per Adarsh, Lucknow Central still has to go through a climactic phase where the newly released movie has to prove its worth in the coming weekend.
Another trade expert Girish Johar tweeted his expectations about Farhan Akhtar film and shared, “I expect the movie to collect at least Rs 2 crore on its opening day. The collection is going to be low, as the trailer of the film has not been so exciting and the level of excitement is on the lower side. Still, I hope the film to make around Rs 7-8 crore by Sunday. But that too depends on good word-of-mouth.”

If we discuss about the views shared by trade analyst Taran Adarsh, he seems to be of the opinion that Lucknow Central is a film with same old story but with a new name. In terms of the audience response, it has been reported that the newly released film has shown a dull response in the morning and afternoon shows.
Before we let you know more about Lucknow Central box office collection day 1, let’s take a look at the storyline. Well, as you might be aware, the film narrates the story of someone named Kishen Mohan Girhotra hailing from a small town.
Like we see in most films, this character also wants to become a singer, but due to the happening of a few tragic events in his life, he lands up in jail. Now, after he enters into the jail, he tries to gear up again and manages to form a music band with his fellow prisoners. At this point of time, all of them work on the same game plan to escape from the prison.
Lucknow Central box office collection day 1- The film needs to gear up and perform better
A plethora of film critics has presented their own views on this film who have written something better about this Frhan Akhtar movie as compared to the juvenile Qaidi Band.
As per the reviews posted by this critic who wrote “As many as five prisoners plan to run away from the prison in Lucknow Central movie, in the hope to participate in a music Fest. Well, this is what we have earlier spotted almost the same ploy play in another recently released film Quaidi Band. So, what’s all happening? Is it to be called as a fully filmi coincidence or close to sinister story swap?” Having said that, it’s now the turn of audience to counter their views about the film.
In his latest venture, Farhan Akhtar appears again playing one of the artists of his music band, like we witnessed him doing the same roles in films Rock On and its sequel. However, we can say that his newly released film Lucknow Central looks far more gritty than his earlier projects.
The movie plot is exactly the same as the name suggests “Lucknow Central and is reported to have been a real life story. Well, it starts right from the prison where Farhan starts the journey of his music band and happens to be only a disguise for their plans to run out from prison. Considering the Lucknow Central box office collection day 1, the film has received mixed reviews from some eminent critics of the industry.
At this point of time, we all need to sit back and see how the film performs in the time to come. But the journey of this Farhan Akhtar movie is not going to be easy for sure.
On the other hand, kangana Ranaut’s Simran, that was also released along with Lucknow Central easily beat the latter and collected Rs 2.77 crore.
