There should be a law to prevent the lobotomized idiots at Yash Raj Films from ever producing movies.
From the nincompoops who brought us trash like Tashan, Aaja Nachle, Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom and Ta Ra Rum Pum, comes a new horror show - Zyada Garbage, Zero Magic oops Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic (the correct but inapt name of this piece of trash).
A depressingly bad movie, Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic has no raison d’être except some dodos in Mumbai fancy that if the likes of Ram Gopal Varma can make bad movies, hey, they can make worse movies.
This movie falls way, way short of delivering on its cute title that we feel compelled to describe it in the rest of this review by the more apposite Zyada Garbage, Zero Magic.
Any product tastes scrumptious only if the recipe is great. And the recipe is what is amiss in Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic, that takes off with weak and shallow screen-writing amalgamated with a cliched storyline of yore. The movie may yet appeal to the average Bollywood fanatic with its music and predictable proceedings. The gaping hole, however, remains its below par screenplay, replete with mismatched portrayals of characters and unnatural schmaltz.
The story obviously is cut and paste in bits and pieces (like many of its kissing Bolly cousins) from such flicks as Splash and Mary Pop....
