Thoda pyaar, thoda magic, bahut boring

I never intended to write a movie review and that too for this movie, but it’s that same itching in the fingers to key in some rubbish….so here goes. And being unable to pen down a story of my own at this moment, let me just fling mud on someone else’s. There are a few movies that you really watch for yourself and majority of them are just thrust upon you...for family’s sake, like this one.
I am a mom but no, I don’t find all the kids cute and especially those ones in this movie are not convincing. There are four of them, each trying his/her own bit to amuse, move, entertain the audience, but not even one of them is genuine and believable at all.Not that I am against all child actors…. I liked the child in Taare Zameen Par and the one in Fanaa.
And Rishi Kapoor is playing God, for God’s sake, no!!This guy suddenly stops changing his sweaters(to conceal his tummy) and running around the trees with Juhi Chawla ,singing Bol Radha Bol and suddenly steps into being Kajol’s dad and now God, our Father in Heaven.And on top of it he tries to be a funny God, a God with a funny streak, a sense of humour, and he ruins it.
Raani Mukheji is a good actress, as always…and she is an angel from heaven…but that doesn’t mean she has to keep wearing the same dress all 2.5 hours of the movie.Angels are allowed change of clothes with other allowances, at least for the viewers’ sake..if not for the intellectual, elite ones ..but for mortal ones like me who love to see nice and colorful designer dresses.A movie is a getaway, so it better be colorful.
And Amisha Patel is trying hard to squeeze into her clothes.She could,in the least, have lost some weight if she were to do that cameo role.This is the business she is in -gain weight,lose weight,whatever the role demands!!Abhishek,Aishwarya,Hrithik, everybody does it...this shows her dedication!!And the Lazy Lamhe song is unbelievable…people complain about suggestive and double-meaning songs and dialogues..but the lyrics of this one just say it, loud and clear..after all, be explicit,be candid, so all can understand and that too in a movie meant for kids.
Saif is safe with his looks,lucky guy, despite the sulky expression he carries in the most part of the movie.
But all said and done, my son did enjoy the movie, giggling away when the dinosaurs come to life in one of the songs. And he commented on Rishi Kapoor, playing God in heaven -
Mom, this guy was alive in the Chanda Chamke movie (Fanaa), now he is dead and in heaven.
