Anand Rai's Thodi Life Thoda Magic and Yashraj Films Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic released on the same day. Must say, a nice release strategy. Release a small movie against a biggie with almost the same title! Was Anand trying to confuse the audience into buying tickets for his film? Anyways, it's the content that matters and Thoda Life Thoda Magic falls flat in that department.


Thodi Life Thoda Magic is a lighthearted story that attempts to understand the reasons behind happiness in life. People's lives are spent in daily routines, compromising relationships and in search of money. In these attempts to get through life, one ignores the smaller things that can influence one's emotions. Based on this premise, the story traces the explorations of MK (Jackie Shroff), a man who lives for the day and moment, and whose personality is underlined by a compassionate and caring soul. MK meets Siddharth (Saahil Chadha) and their friendship allows Siddharth to understand the true meaning of life. Naina (Meera Vasudevan), a young writer, learns to believe in herself and build newer and better relationships thanks to her interactions with MK.


Similarly, MK changes the lives of other characters like Roshan (Arbaaz Khan), Ashima (Anita Raj) and Aditya (Parmeet Sethi). MK's charisma and insights of life help these people rediscover the magic behind human emotions and the importance of relationships. The film, through its central character, puts forth the message that life can be magical.


Anand Rai (Strangers) fails miserably, the movie has no direction, it's a stupid story with many questions left unanswered. The first half drags and bores the hell out of you. The second half is no better; wonder how actors like Jackie Shroff and Arbaaz Khan approve such scripts? There is absolutely nothing in the movie that is worth a mention. The editing is horrible! The music (Vinay Tiwari) is average.


Jackie Shroff should retire now. It's high time; he's been acting in some stupid movies. His performance is going from bad to worse. Arbaaz Khan is wooden. Saahil Chadha (also the producer of Thoda Life Thoda Magic) is average as the creative head. Rest of the cast is okay.


To sum things up, Thodi Life Thoda Magic has absolutely no life and don't even think of magic. Poor performances, horrible execution, average music, non-existent story. The movie will be out of theatres and forgotten soon.
