Synopsis/Plot : An ex-army officer Kabir (Zaheer Iqbal) comes back to Kashmir to be a school teacher. However, things turn out to be totally opposite of what he had imagined. The school is situated in the middle of the remote Wuller lake, lacking basic amenities like running water and electricity and is attended by just a handful of students. This is not what Kabir had signed up for. Things take a turn when one day Kabir finds a notebook, left behind by the previous year's teacher Firdaus (Pranutan Bahl). What follows is what happens to Kabir after the discovery of this special notebook.
The highlights of 'Notebook' are the cinematography by Manoj Kumar Khatoi and the performances by Zaheer and Pranutan.

It Will Bind Your Emotions Together!
Notebook is bring-you-heart-to-the-theater flick. It has nothing extraordinary & that's the speciality of the film. It is an abundance of cuteness bundled with a tour package of unexplored Kashmir playing few beautiful songs in the background.(more)
