The movie revolves around Kishen and his jail inmates who form a music band as part of an escape plan from prison. Diana Penty plays a key role as NGO activist who helps Kishen orchestrate the prison break.

Ronit Roy plays the antagonist while one of the band members is Deepak Dobriyal. Given the stellar cast, the film looks promising. Further, the music, which is an integral part of the movie, is already making waves, especially the song Kaavaan Kaavaan.

Helmed by Ranjit Tiwari, Lucknow Central clashes with Kangana Ranaut's Simran at the box office. Nikhil Advani has produced the movie.
