Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic, a fair attempt by Kunal kohli, with a good combination of peppy music, laughter, pyar and magic for the kids! The story is about Ranbir Talwar(Saif Ali Khan), a cold and emotionless businessman who has from the beginning of his life been subjected to loss of love. Losing his mother at a young age, he is much accustomed to being the one who takes his award and leaves the party first. But one night, when he is the cause of an accident resulting in the death of two other people, leaving their children orphaned, the court decides to give custody of the children to him, to take care of and be responsible for.

Along with his bimbo girlfriend (Amisha Patel), whose primary concern in life is the new release of Prada bags, he takes up the responsibility rather lightly. But on the other side, the four children - Vishisht, Iqbal, Aditi and Avantika are waiting to meet the mThoda Pyaar Thoda Magican who brought them to this state, and at any price, take their revenge. One day when the children can tolerate it no longer, and they pray to god to get them out of staying this way, God (Rishi Kapoor) listens in, and sends down his favourite angel Geeta (Rani) to help them. Ranbir brings in the Nanny (Rani) for them, and THAT is where all the magic begins. From how he finally gets them to like him, to the "thoda" pyar right at the end.

Saif and Rani have done a good job on the acting, and while the movie is an entertainer, it does tend to bring a sense of Tara Rum Pum deja vu along with it, with the kids and the "rona dhona" that comes with it... The songs however are in no way crying material, what with Shankar Ehsaan and Loy outshining themselves with the tracks in this movie! Nihaal ho gayi being immediately one of the favourites, and Lazy Lamhe with Amisha Patel sizzling it out is another favourite. While the other tracks like Bulbula and Beetey Kal se, with Rani dancing it out aren't as peppy, they do get the mood of the movie set in place!

Over-all, a good movie, a good watch for children and Rani Mukerji fans. But if you didn't enjoy Tara Rum Pum, chances are, you're not going to enjoy this too much. Nothing too unpredictable about the story line here, so don't expect too much suspense! The love between Rani and Saif kicks in only in the last 20 minutes of the movie, so let's not expect too much romance either! A clap for the songs, and a one time watch for this one!
