Action method is not being called on one scenario. Why?

I am trying to build a custom dynamic lookup component. I have put this component in a form, choosing a record from object record list (from lookup) and lastly calling a method from commandButton to check record Id and name properly selected or not.

 

This is working fine when I am using it alone in a VF Page form. Getting the id and name what I am selecting in the method's system.debug(). But when I am trying this component multiple times in a PageBlockTable, it makes some problem. No issue on selecting record on each of this lookup. But when I am clicking the button to check all the lookups value in the controller's method, I found the method is not being called. In debug log, I couldn't even found the method name too.

 

I am providing my component, component controller, lookup page, component calling page and its cotroller.
