Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic movie review

Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic is the story of the country’s top industrialist Ranbeer Talwar (Saif Ali Khan), one of the country’s top industrialists who is a loner, not by choice, but because he lost everyone he ever loved. He causes a car accident in which parents of four children are killed.

He now faces a very peculiar and uncomfortable situation. In a rare and landmark court verdict, he is to look after 4 orphan children.
The orphans hate him and want revenge from him.
The children do not want to live with a man they hate; he too cannot face them or look at them in the eye for certain reasons.

Their life together is very unhappy. One day they pray to God for help and he does help them. He sends his most mischievous, childlike, lovable angel to the rescue, with a mission to bring Ranbeer and the kids together.
Geeta (Rani Mukerji) comes bicycling down a rainbow… and bursts into Ranbeer’s house as the self proclaimed new nanny.

And then starts the roller coaster ride of fun, emotions, magic and love. An angel who doesn’t know what love is. A man who always lost love. Four orphans who need love. All come together to bring you a film with fun, excitement, masti, tears, magic and love. Truly, its Thoda Pyaar, Thoda Magic!

Ranbeer Talwar (Saif Ali Khan) is a man who never got love. From the time Ranbeer Talwar was a young boy he lost everyone close to him. He became a loner. He was an achiever from the time he was a boy. But no victory, no trophy meant anything to him, as he was alone. The one thing he always wanted in his life was love and that was the only thing he always lost. A winner in every deal, in every aspect of his life, Ranbeer immersed himself in his work and completely ignored every other aspect of his life, until he is face to face with four orphans who need love and an angel who could not love.

Geeta (Rani Mukerji) who is an angel who could not love. Geeta is like a storm who barges into Ranbeer’s life when he and the four orphans find it difficult to live with each other. Geeta comes with a mission from heaven to unite Ranbeer and the kids, but something happens on the way… an angel who could not love starts wondering what love is. An angel who is above all human emotions of tears and pain and love, starts to feel something. But how can an angel love? She’s on a mission – she has to go back when it’s done.

Vashisht, Aditi, Iqbal and Avantika are the four orphans who need love
When the four Walia children are orphaned, they decide one thing – they don’t need any relatives to take care of them as they have what they need to survive – they have each other. But what they really want is revenge from the man they hate – Ranbeer Talwar.

The story, though well written and directed, is influenced by Walt Disney’s “Mary Poppins,” which starred Julie Andrews who plays the role somewhat similar to the angel in this film. Rani Mukherjee is wonderful as the angel. She is just rightly cast in this role. Saif Ali Khan, is intense, impressive and also handled his role very well. Rishi Kapoor is in this film in a complete different role, though for a short while.

It is a good family entertainer that is positioned to be watched with kids. For the grown ups, it is Ameesha Patel’s whose presence brings the glamour quotient.
