Storyline

On the day he receives an award, arrogant, wealthy, and self-centered Ranbeer Talwar has an accident with his BMW that results in the death of the parents of four young children. Ranbeer is arrested and, a year later, sentenced: look after all the four children until they reach the age of 18 or else face 20 years behind bars without any parole. Ranbeer agrees to do so, not realizing that the children have a plan of their own - to avenge the death of their parents by ensuring that he breaches his undertaking and ends up in jail.

Trivia

Several references are made to the film's crew throughout the film. For example, Mallaika states that her bag is a Manish Malhotra (one of the film's costume designers) during the court scene, while associate director Binoy Gandhi, described as a mega film star, is punished by God for paying bribes to win awards.

Goofs

Balject Singh Marwah is listed in the credits as "Saif's Driver." Saif Ali Khan is the actor who plays the character "Ranbeer Talwar." The listing of credit confuses the actor with his character. The credits should have said "Ranbeer's Driver" instead. See more »

Lots of Pyar--Thoda Magic.
24 August 2008 | by (Heraganahalli, India) – See all my reviews

The Story and direction is by Kunal Kohli who used to be Film Critic before he started wielding his own megaphone. The Story if original or borrowed is purely poignant. Now the Cast-Saif Ali Khan is a great actor but he is so overworked he probably does't even know which set, what scene or what emotion to portray. He goes thru the film with an "attitude" or a fixed demeanor that is becoming very familiar. Where as Rani gives one hundred percent of herself. The kids have a good potential, specially the kid that plays the older girl. The Scene with God and Angels sitting around is immaculately done with some great camera work and sets. Rishi Kapoor is "God"-a part that Amitab Bachchan used to have firm grip on, But Kapoor, is good whether he is playing "God" or a mere mortal. The movie has some week moments like the pool escapade. What was the point in this? was this in the Angel's job description? I wonder. The San Diego excursion even though approved by the Judge, kind of diluted the proceedings that otherwise had a homely feeling to it. All said and done this is good movie with some terrific words of wisdom and few lessons to learn. Rani, was portraying an Angel...but her acting was down-to-earth and saved Saif..Kunal...and Yash Raj Films.
