Trivia

Kunal Kohli initially asked Ameesha Patel to lose slight weight for her role in the film. Kohli and Malhotra spent hours deciding her look in the film. See more »

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 »

Not much pyaar or magic but plenty of flaws
8 August 2008 | by springsunnywinterSee all my reviews

The film started off really interesting but gets more boring as it continues. The simple story was told well at the first 20 minutes but dragged very badly until the end. The whole movie was so predictable that it felt like that I've already seen it about 10 times although I've only seen it once. It reminded me of 3 films: Mary Poppins, Nanny McPhee and Hum Hai Rahi Pyaar Ke staring Aamir Khan. So it also lacks originality. The music isn't even good and the only catchy song is Lazy Lamhe. It is directed by Kunal Kohli and all of his films are rubbish except Fanaa. He is definitely overrated and I'm glad that Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic flopped at box office. The Lazy Lamhe song was so daft because Amisha Patel was singing underwater.
