    No magic for Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic overseas

    By By: Taran Adarsh, IndiaFM
    |

    Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic is one of the biggest disappointments of this year in the international markets. Generally, a Yash Raj film has its share of loyal followers, but the failure of films like Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Aaja Nachle and Tashan has eroded the fan-base. That's one of the reasons why Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic failed to attract footfalls at cineplexes in U.K., U.S.A. and Australia.

    There was a lot riding on Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic, since both Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji are extremely popular with the videshi junta. Plus, the theme of Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic is exactly what the Indian diaspora relishes. That explains why Yash Raj released the film extensively in these territories. But alas! Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic is one of the lowest Yash Raj openers here.

    Check out the comparative openers in each territory -- it's an eye-opener!
