The first half of SKF's Notebook is gorgeously shot, along with an average Pranutan and a good (and an extremely good looking) Zaheer. It is neatly written and doesn't lose its pace. We are yet to explore the rest.
Notebook opens with Kabir (Zaheer Iqbal) joining a remote Kashmir school as a teacher. Initially unable to handle the children, he slowly gels along great with them. Meanwhile, in his drawer, he finds a notebook which belonged to Firdaus (Pranutan Bahl) who used to teach here before him. Gradually, his search for Firdaus begins.
