Magic Magic 3D is a 2003 Indian Tamil-language fantasy film in stereoscopic 3D directed by Jose Punnoose. The film stars Suraj Balajee, S.P. Balasubramaniam, Tirlok Malik and Pooja Kumar. It was dubbed in Malayalam, Telugu and Hindi, with the Hindi dub being titled as Chota Jadugar (Little Magician).[4][5] It won the National Film Award for Best Special Effects.


The film starts with children searching for Indrajeet (Suraj Balajee) to convey the news that his father Krishna (Tirlok Malik) has returned from America. But Indrajeet scares them away with his magic tricks. Indrajeet lives with his grandfather, a great magician Acharya (S.P. Balasubramaniam) in a palatial (plastic) house in Mayapuri. The boy's mother died when he was an infant. The loving grandfather teaches him all the magic but never sent him to school for basic education. Suddenly Indrajeet's father who runs a successful Indian channel in America lands up to take away his son for education. Indrajeet refuses to leave his grandfather but is (packed in a cardboard box) and sent by magic to New York.

Indrajeet wakes up in another house where he finds a Malayalam/Tamil/Hindi speaking English woman waking him up. He meets his stepmother (Pooja Kumar) but soon he runs away from home and befriends three run-away orphans and a wonder dog who belongs to Mahesh and Lude, two funny petty thieves. Meanwhile, Acharya comes to New York in search of his grandson who gets kidnapped by the bumbling idiots and in the climax he, along with the dog, saves Indrajeet using all the 3D effects in the world.



The film was shot entirely in United States. According to Jose, the film took 140 days to complete.[6]


The music was composed by Sharreth and Jagan.

Sify stated that it "is technically tacky, made in a shoddy manner and lacks a basic storyline that will not gel with today's children".[8] However, IdleBrain said, "Don't forget to take kids along with you. They need to watch this movie more than you!!"[9] The film won the National Film Award for Best Special Effects.[10]
