Director Rosshan Andrrews' "Notebook" is a film set in a school milieu that's naughty and nice and will appeal to the teenage crowd. But it may fail to live up to the expectations that his hugely successful directorial debut "Udayananu Tharam" generated. 

The story revolves around three girls and their misadventures in a boarding school, the Lord's Academy in Ooty. Saira Elizabeth, Pooja and Sreedevi are thick friends and are always together. The first one is naughty and bold, the second girl, an angel at one moment and a selfish brat at another, and the third one is shy and timid. The traits of these three girls   take the story forward when it unfolds beyond their initial friendship.

Sreedevi, the most innocent among them falls for this guy played by Sooraj. Although her friends try to discourage her in the beginning, when they realise her involvement they support their relationship. But things turn negative when she misuses the freedom allowed by her friends and becomes pregnant. This unfortunate incident changes each one of their lives completely. Watch the movie to find out what happens to them...

The director tries to put forward a message that children needs to grow up with their parents and that they should be close enough to express their innermost feelings to them openly. In this fast and modern world where nobody has the time or patience for anything, the director tries to convey how family support could do wonders for children to succeed in life. 

If you look at the negative side, some of the sequences lack originality, like the opening scene when the three girls try to skip New Year's midnight prayer to plant a sapling in the school's campus as a symbol of their friendship. The screenplay, credited to Bobby and Sanjay, to some extend fails to involve the audience emotionally with any of the trio. If the school and its inmates were presented in a more realistic manner, the characters would have elicited greater audience empathy.   

Roshhan Andrews with this film has made a brave attempt by bringing out a film with newcomers sans any big stars in the lead. The plus points of the film are the camera of C.Divakar and the songs tuned by debutant Majo Joseph who also acts in the movie. Songs such as 'Hridayavum... and 'Changhathikoottam..' are quite hummable. Newcomers- Roma, Parvathi and Mariya give a very impressive performance, especially Roma as Saira has a charming screen presence. The principal, a stern priest nicknamed Draculam as well as the young newcomer Sooraj have also done their parts well. Suresh Gopi enacts a cameo role as Saira's father.  

Overall the movie is worth a watch.
