It is 'thodi khushi thoda gham' for THODA PYAAR THODA MAGIC.
Let's break the 'gham' news first! As expected, the film took a poor start at the box office, something which hardly came as a surprise considering the kind of beating Yash Raj Films have taken in the recent times, the Saif-Rani 'jodi' which was seemingly making one look in a different direction, below average promotion by YRF and boring promos - all of which making it quite clear that THODA PYAAR THODA MAGIC would have to rely primarily upon strong word of mouth.
Now let's talk about 'thodi khushi' here! Well, the good news is that by and large the film has opened to good reviews. Though there have been a few reviews calling this fantasy-meeting-real world flick being barely average, a large section of media hasn't quite panned this effort by Kunal Kohli and termed it as a nice feel good entertainer for the entire family.
While Saif Ali Khan has come out trumps with THODA PYAAR THODA MAGIC, something which was missing in TASHAN where he seemed to have lost the battle due to a half baked role and some severe editing, Rani Mukherjee's performance (an especially looks and attire) has seen a mixed response from the critics.
On the other hand Ameesha Patel can take solace from the fact that at the least she has been considered worthy to be reviewed at least; something that she would have missed heavily in BHOOL BHULAIYAA where she was simply ignored. However, to be fair to the girl, she has been considered as a decent enough eye candy in this fun flick which should be good enough to keep her happy as she gambled in playing a second lead.
A poor opening would certainly impact the film heavily since the business scenario necessitates that a project makes most of it's moolah over its first weekend. Also, coming weekend is not without its share of competition due to much hyped clash of LOVE STORY 2050 and JAANE TO YA JAANE NAA.
However, courtesy good reviews and word of mouth, all eyes are now set on how the remainder of the weekend goes with audience expected to help the film sustain itself over the weekdays!
