Notebook: Relive the popular Kashmiri folk song Bumro with Zaheer Iqbal


After a long time we have a recreated version of an extremely popular song which has not murdered the original track and for that, we are extremely thankful to the makers of Notebook. The third song Bumro from Notebook featuring Zaheer Iqbal and Pranutan Bahl released today and thankfully, the song based on the original Bumbro from Mission Kashmir starring Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta is still pleasing to the ears.

The recreated Bumro sees Zaheer shaking a leg with the children he is teaching at the makeshift school where he is deployed. The song has been sung by Kamaal Khan and composed by Vishal Mishra. Unlike the original version where the female lead is headlining the song Notebook’s Bumro has completely male rendition.

Zaheer is impeccable in his dance moves and his chemistry with the kids is heartwarming. Apart from the signature line, all the lyrics of the song have been revamped in the Kashmiri language which is extremely soothing to the ears and lends an original flavor to it.

The video of the song is also extremely heartwarming with Zaheer as the happy, goofy and friendly teacher whose teaching is not restricted to the four walls and only to books. Although, Pranutan does not feature in this song her writings from the notebook on which the film’s premise is based makes an appearance.

Helmed by Nitin Kakkar, Notebook is presented by Salman Khan Films and is a Cine1 Studios Production. It is produced by Salma Khan, Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde and is all set to hit the screens on March 29.
