Saif Ali Khan,
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. Written by

Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic is similar to films like Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke and Marry Poppins. The film basically offers nothing new unless you didn't watch these two films you could go ahead and give Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic a try.
After films like Hum Tum and Fanaa, it was quite disappointing from Kunal Kohli to come up with an ordinary product. Although he manages to extract good performances from the child artistes, he could've come up with a better storyline since its nothing new.
The songs are just about average; Lazy Lamhe stands out amongst the rest of the songs and the music video is well-shot, although too sensual for a kids film.
Saif Ali Khan is good and fits the part perfectly. Rani Mukerji is cute as the angel, but her role is not very demanding. Ameesha Patel is remarkable as the airhead bimbo. She looks sizzling in Lazy Lamhe. Rishi Kapoor is good, but his role is not very demanding, again, for an actor of his seniority. The child artistes are excellent, especially Rachit Sidana.
All in all, Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic mainly belongs to the four kids. A decent entertainer! Kids will probably love it.
