Director Kunal Kohli says that his forthcoming film Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic is an unusual film about love, relationship and family.

Known for his penchant for romantic films, Kohli, after giving superhits like Hum Tum and Fanaa , is all set for next release 'Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic' with his hit jodi of Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukherjee under the Yashraj Films banner.

"It is an unusual film about love, relationship and family. The film tells the story of four orphans whose custody is given to a lonely businessman (Saif). The kids hate Saif. They need love but there is none to love them. But then comes an angel (Rani) from heaven to help them. The only problem is that the angel doesn't know what love is," says the young director.

'Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic' is slated for release on June 27.

At a time when many films like Tashan , Aaja Nachle , Laaga Chunari Mein Daag , Jhoom Barabar Jhoom by Yash Raj failed at box office, the movie by Kohli brings lot of expectations in the film circles.

"Those were Yash Raj's movies, not mine. And I am confident that audience will like it like my previous two movies," says Kohli who has worked with the Yash Raj earlier in three movies, Mujhse Dosti Karoge , 'Hum Tum' and 'Fanaa'.

Talking about his lucky mascot Saif and Rani, he says, "Saif excels if he is offered different roles. The experimentation of roles with Saif always turns out to be a success. It's a question of tapping his potential, which very few directors have done successfully in the past in films like Dil Chahta Hai , Parineeta or Omkara . And in this movie he will be seen in a different role. Rani is an actress with par excellence. So no need to comment on that."

So what's new in the movie? "It has got fantasy and reality. Working with children in the movie was a new experience for me. They are so talented and perform like seasoned actors. Children have performed like real 'Des ke Bacche'," he says.

Kohli, who has co-produced 'Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic' with Yashraj Films, says that his movie is an entertaining film, which would appeal to kids and the kids inside adults and adds that he has made the movie keeping in mind the Kids market, which is growing by the day.

"We don't make films for kids any more. Children are a tougher audience to please to as they don't want to see repetition of any character. So there was a challenge for me not to repeat anything similar in the movie."

Kohli feels that casting is a very important task in the film as the entire showcase of the movie lies on it. The warmth and the coordination plays a very important role in the entire process of movie making, he says.

While praising lyricist Prasoon Joshi for writing some beautiful numbers in the film, he says, "He is in real sense raise the standard of the film. Industry has seen some of the great lyricists but Prasoon with his poetry brings a different look to the songs." The music in the film is given by the trio of Shankar Ehsaan Loy .

Even though Kohli has taken on production, direction remains his first love. "Despite turning a producer, direction will remain his first love."
