Anyone living in the Canberra area would tell you what weird weather we have been having in the last few days. On Friday, we had quite a frost in the morning and it was minus 3°C. Yesterday, our weather went up to 24°C and I had the doors and windows opened until I went to bed. Then we had a thunderstorm in the wee hours of the morning and it is still raining out there now and the temperature has dropped again. Perfect weather for a snuggle with a book or a DVD to which end, I snuggled with a blankie on my sofa and watched THODA PYAAR THODA MAGIC (A LITTLE BIT OF LOVE, A LITTLE BIT OF MAGIC). I am still felling a bit under the weather (excuse the pun) so it was a perfect opportunity.
The story has elements of the Hollywood movie ‘Mary Poppins’ with Rani Mukerji playing the role of a ‘peri’ (angel) who GOD sends down to help Saif Ali Khan, a recluse, to look after 4 orphaned kids. In true Bollywood style, there is song, dance, funny moments and tears. I would recommend you watch this movie and being a Yash Raj movie, you know you will be getting your money’s worth. Anyway, don’t we all deserve ‘thoda pyaar, thoda magic’???
PS: You can buy this movie on line from BOLLYWOOD QUARTER. My favourite song from this movie is 'Crazy lamhe'.
