Salman Khan is all set to launch two new faces in Bollywood with his upcoming production venture Notebook. Starring Zaheer Iqbal and Pranutan Bahl, the romantic film has been majorly shot in Kashmir and hence looks beautiful and promising. Directed by Nitin Kakkar, the trailer of the film was launched amidst much fanfare and it also garnered good response from everyone on social media. The songs which have been coming out one after the other have also created good buzz. So let’s check out the whole music album right away!

The first song on the list is Mohit Chauhan’s Safar and it’s a beautiful composition which will keep you hooked to the song till the very end. Plus, Chauhan’s voice is so magical that there is no way you won’t fall in love this number which is actually addictive. Also, have to give credit to lyricist Kaushal Kishore for penning down this track which has so much depth and meaning. I am certainly going to hear this one on loop and so should you guys!

Next up is Bumro which has been sung by Kamaal Khan and yes it’s the remixed version of Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta’s old number Bhumro Bhumro.  Though Bollywood has been lately obsessed with recreating old classics, the makers of Notebook have done a fine job with this one. Composed by Vishal Mishra, this Kashmiri folk song is quite different from the one which was in Mission Kashmir. The lyrics, the dance steps and pretty much everything else has been reworked and the final product offered to us is good. Overall, the song has still retained its Kashmiri touch and is definitely worth hearing. Even the video has been shot well wherein the lead actor Zaheer Iqbal is seen flaunting his dance moves. If you liked the original Bhumro song then you wouldn’t mind listening to the recreated version as well.

Third song on the list is Nai Lagda which is not only composed by Vishal Mishra but it’s also sung by him along with Asees Kaur. Unlike the first two songs, Nai Lagda is a slow, romantic number which talks about love and longing. The music is soft and soothing to the ears and overall the song is quite soulful and will touch your heart especially if you’re a sucker for romance. Coming to the video, it’s visually stunning and narrates the love story of the lead-pair effectively. All in all, Nai Lagda is also worth hearing. Though it’s not a happy romantic song, it will grow on you slowly. 

Then we have Laila which is sung by the very talented Dhvani Bhanushali. Again, it’s a soft romantic number which is picturised on the lead pair. Interestingly, Vishal has composed this number using live symphony orchestra from London. No wonder, the music is just sublime. Also, its Dhvani’s first solo song and I have to admit her tonal quality is very good and different as well. While I liked hearing Laila, it’s a bit slow according to my music taste. But apart from that, I don’t really have any complaints for this song.

Last on the list is The Notebook Symphony which will certainly impress all who love hearing instrumental music. Composed by Vishal Mishra, The Notebook Symphony has a very calming effect and is soulful and comforting at the same time. It’s for all those people who really dig music and feel that words aren’t really necessary to convey across any kind emotion. 

All in all, the music album of Notebook is really impressive and has raised my expectations for the film. If I had to pick my favourite, it would be Safar followed by Nai Lagda and then Bumro. But overall the music of the film is pretty good and all the songs are worth hearing at least once.
