3. Escaped drama: Lucknow Central is a story of the jail inmates who have a dream and that is freedom. Diana Penty who is an NGO worker is compelled to form a band of prisoners for the band competition. Kishen befriends four other inmates, namely Dikkat Ansari, Victor Chattopadhyay, Purushottam Pandit, Parminder Trehan and convinces them to join the band and they land up planning to escape from the jail. While Lincoln sets free with the help of his brother Michael's skills, it would be interesting to watch how the gang of Lucknow Central break free. The trailer of the film shows glimpses of Farhan's effort to set free from the prison along with the other inmates as he rightly suggests to Deepak Dobriyal 'Plan kuch aur hi hai.'
4. Recreational life inside jail: The dramatic narrative of Lucknow central portrays the life of the people in jail and how the musical band changed the life of the band members and the way music became a part of their life. In 'Prison Break' apart from all the drama of escape, the life of prisoners has been shown in a different way where the convicts indulge in recreational activities such as volley ball and painting while in prison.
