Nitin Kakkar’s Notebook is based on an ex-army officer Kabir (Zaheer Iqbal) who join as a teacher in a deserted school. In the school, he finds a diary of a teacher, Firdaus (Pranutan Bahl) who was there previous year. Kabir starts reading Firdaus’s personal diary. And as he reads page by page, he finds himself falling in love with her without even seeing her.
The movie is a romantic series that will keep you entertained with some fantastic twists and turns. The movie had some loopholes that were more than illogical but the story plot covered it.
Taking about the cinematography, it’s just wonderful. The best part is that the movie is shot in Kashmir and the maximum part is done at a school erected in the middle of a lake. The mesmerizing scenic beauty will blow our mind. Nitin Kakar has managed to cover up all the scenes gracefully, especially the climactic sequence.
Well, talking about the script and screenplay hit a clear miss. There is no much part to the story plot which is quite a major point. The first half is quite nice while the second half is a bit dragged till the climax. Still, it keeps us hooked us because of the good performances by the cast.
Interestingly, this is for the first time that Salman Khan has produced a film that featured two new comers in the lead roles. But the debut actors made it more interesting and strong. Their natural acting with utmost ease will not even make you think once that they both are newcomers.
Talking about the music, it is given by Vishal Mishra. All the songs are melodious including Main Taare that is sung by Salman Khan himself.
Overall, the old school romance movie is full of entertainment. It has good music with good performances from the actors.
