In this Bollywood take on Mary Poppins, a judge forces wealthy bachelor Ranbeer (Saif Ali Khan) to adopt four kids after he kills their parents in a car accident. The court-created clan is miserable until a mischievous angel, played by the delightful Rani Mukerji, arrives to turn them into a real family. The setup is far-fetched, but Thoda Pyaar, Thoda Magic (“A Little Love, A Little Magic”) addresses the kids’ emotions realistically, while maintaining a light tone appropriate for a fun summer flick.

No Rating (brief violence); 145 minutes
