Bumro, the latest song from Zaheer Iqbal and Pranutan Bahl’s Notebook is a clear reminder of Hrithik Roshan-Preity Zinta’s Bumbro from Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s 2000 film, Mission Kashmir, but the makers claim it is not a recreation. The third song of the film was released on Wednesday afternoon and the first line as well as the tune is a clear lift from the original. However, the lyrics have been changed entirely and the music is majorly inspired by Kashmiri folk music.
Written by Kaushal Kishore, Bumro has been composed by Vishal Mishra and sung by Kamaal Khan. Speaking about the song, composer Vishal Mishra had said, “We didn’t want to recreate the same song (Bumro). So, we retained the original folk song, but composed a new melody using a bit of Kashmiri instruments & influences. That is something we have done for the entire soundtrack of the film.”
The song’s video shows Zaheer playing with a group of kids. Sharing the song, Kamaal tweeted, “OUT TODAY My new song #Bumro #Notebook Love to @BeingSalmanKhan #ZaheerIqbal #PranutanBahl #VishalMishra @SKFilmsOfficial @ashwinvarde @MuradKhetani ENJOY!!”
Notebook is about a couple who fall in love in the picturesque valley of Kashmir, without ever meeting each other. Notebook launches actor Nutan’s granddaughter Pranutan Bahl and Zaheer Iqbal, who is the son of Salman’s friend.
Pranutan had said while interacting with media at the trailer preview of Notebook, “I did give lot of auditions for two and half years or so for lot of films. I never used to say I am from a film family. For this film they knew that I was Mohnish’s daughter. I gave a five hour long audition for this film. But they called some other girls also as they were like if they take me then it will be like ‘I am from film family’. So they auditioned some 80 to 100 girls but Nitin sir felt I was the right choice.”
Along with Pranutan, the film also marks the debut of Zaheer Iqbal and both the actors play teachers. Notebook has been produced by Salman Khan Films and is directed by Nitin Kakkar. Zaheer is the son of Salman’s childhood friend Iqbal and was an assistant director on his film Jai Ho.
