Debutants Pranutan Bhal and Zaheer Iqbal starrer film Notebook got mixed to positive reviews. The film tells the story of two teachers in a remote area of Kashmir who bond together via a diary. Now that Notebook has completed its first weekend at the box office, it has so far collected 3.3 crores which is very much less than that expected. However, it is surprising to see that, backed by Salman Khan's home production banner, the film is opened up to such poor start and is not creating a buzz. The film is a remake of Thai film Teacher's Diary released in 2014.
