The children do not want to live with a man they hate; he too cannot face them or look them in the eye for certain reasons. Their life together is very unhappy, one day they pray to God for help and he does help them. He sends his most mischievous, childlike, lovable angel to the rescue, with a mission to bring Ranbeer and the kids together.

An angel who doesn't know what love is. A man who always lost love. Four orphans who need love. All come together for fun, excitement, masti, tears, magic and love. Truly...Thoda Pyaar, Thoda Magic!
