All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

As obvious as the film's uncredited sources are, it's a pleasant-enough diversion with a notable song score.

A tearjerker-comedy family film that doesn't make you want to puke.

Bollywood writer-director filmmaker Kunal Kohli's spin on Mary Poppins is less cloying than its high proportion of cute orphans, adorable animals and fairy-dusted whimsy.

All of the acting is pretty high school drama class...That being obvious, there are some technical leaps that make for fun cinema.

Audience Reviews for Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic


A great family film from Bollywood, a story of redemption, love, and forgiveness.Great actors throughout the film. The extras are very good as is the soundtrack, although one song is truly played way too much in the the film, even though it is really a theme song for family.

Here's an interesting movie about a bachelor industrialist who must take in four orphaned children after accidentally killing their parents in a fatal car collision. He is ordered by the judge to raise the young children throughout the rest of their lives. He is to create a home and provide a new basis of family for the children. Great cast- Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukherjee, and Rishi Kapoor. Definitely worthy.

While not as good as his previous films, Kunal Kohli has his heart in the right place. I would rather watch simple movies like this than the crap that Bollywood keeps on churning out endlessly.
