Notebook stars kids who are adorable, sincere teachers who are alluring, Notebook is set in Kashmir and offers breathtaking views!

This lighthearted romantic comedy is good. The story is set over a timeline of two years from 2007 to 2008. It starts in the later year in which we see Kabir (Zaheer Iqbal), an ex-army man, gets a call from his uncle asking for a favour. He’s requested to take care of a small school in a very remote area of Kashmir. Having 5-7 kids, the school was led by a different teacher, Firdaus (Pranutan Bahl) in 2007. Kabir finds Firdaus’ diary in the school and he starts going through it. Every page he reads, he discovers a positive outlook and new meaning to his life and falls in love with the writing of Firdaus. He struggles with the kids, but he tries to be in their good books. He looks for Pranutan but he doesn’t know where is she a year later. Will they both meet or as said in the trailer, their love story will just be a part of a notebook is the story.

Notebook is Darab Farooqi’s adapted screenplay captures the true essence of Kashmir. The brilliance of Manoj Kumar Khatoi’s cinematography is divine and shines offering a great viewing experience. Great work by original screenplay writers (Nithiwat Tharatorn, Sopana Chowwiwatkul, Thodsapon Thiptinnakorn, Supalerk Ningsanond) to narrate such a story in a simple way. The writers added nostalgia with Nokia 6600 and a mention of 30-minutes free Pizza delivery.

Beautiful Kashmir on-screen, it’s Pranutan Bahl who shines and is convincing with her actions and enjoys a debut. Zaheer Iqbal is great at emoting. He is impressive with his sturdy physique and still conveys a childlike innocence. The kids in the film are great. Their track instantly connects and everyone is awesome but Mir Mohammed Mehroos (Imran) and Mir Mohammed Zayan (Tariq) get good screen time.

Nitin Kakkar has given Filmistaan and Mitron. His version of Kashmir is more beautiful, thanks to the rich production value. Vishal Mishra offers Nai Lagda & Bhumro and combination is good with the narration.

Notebook is like a tour to Kashmir with beautiful people.

Notebook releases on 29th March 2019.
