Tut (2015) Spike’s TV Mini Series, ends and very nicely done!

I was very opportunate to watch Spike TV’s new mini-series ‘TUT’ which is based on the legendary boy king of Thebes, Tutankhamun. The three parts mini-series has been based on Tutankhamun’s career, life, and death. It’s one of the beautiful work ever done on his biography. I learned why the boy king is called the legend of Egypt.

So many films and documentaries on Tutankhamun are made, but Tut is an interesting series which is a great success on the television screen. On Tut, the story portraits Tutankhamun’s character with honor and honesty. My respect to full cast and crew, including actors, actresses, directors, writers and more.

Whether or not, may be or may not be Tut followed the original history but I felt there are solid links with the history. I hope this movie would be loved by everyone and it would be one of the collector’s edition. A must watch biography film for the students and researchers.

Alexander Siddig, Avan Jogia, Nonso Anozie, Ben Kingsley, Sibylla Deen, Kylie Bunbury, and Steve Toussaint all the characters played very well. They are real and played so original that nowhere I felt, I’m watching a film. In my opinion, Alexander Siddig has been played one of the most attractive characters in Tut. Before I found him interesting in Da Vinci’s Demons and Game of Thrones. Siddig proved once more there is no one better than him as the sorcerer. Another notable character is Mr. Nonso Anozie, I liked his acting as Samson in The Bible and R.M. Renfield in TV series Dracula. In Tut Anozie is strong, complete and gentle as General Horemheb. The TV series like Tut is always very welcome. Thanks, Spike TV for the gift like Tut.

5 Reasons Why You Must Like The Film – Big (1988)

Big (1988) – is a comedy movie directed by Penny Marshall, starring Tom Hanks, Elizabeth Perkins, Robert Loggia and Jared Rushton. The characters in this movie are brilliant. I do not feel bore or over-acted throughout the film.

In this film, I found many good things to learn. Like, Josh and Billy had a wonderful friendship. A friend in need is a friend indeed.

Then the character of Susan (Elizabeth Perkins), her arrogance, smartness and seductive corporate nature turned calm when she gets closer to 30-years old Josh, who is innocent like a 12 years boy (because he is a twelve-year-old boy).


Picture: A chance of encounter where Josh impressed Mr.MacMillan, the owner of the MacMillan Toy Company and after that Josh promoted to testing new toys. From the film, Big (1988).

Mr. MacMillan (Robert Loggia), the nature of a true businessman and visionary, who knew to whom to invest for market growth of his toy manufacture business and take it to the next level.

Here I pointed out five reasons why you must like the movie “BIG“.

1. Be careful before, what you wish from unplugged Zoltar? 

Josh (David Moscow), a little boy of thirteen who wished to an unusual antique arcade fortune teller machine called Zoltar Speaks to become “big”. The machine was dramatically supernatural and was unplugged at that moment. When Josh woke up next morning, he found himself turned into a grown-up 30 years old man (Tom Hanks). Next time when you get a fortune teller machine like Zoltar, be careful what you wish!

2. “A thirteen-year-old boy always wants a thirteen-year-old girl”:

Mr. MacMillan (Robert Loggia), owner of one of the big toy company in New York, spends his valuable time to kid’s toy store in the city to read their mind. According to his personal opinion of reading the children’s mind, he came to a conclusion that every thirteen years old boy wants a thirteen years old girl for playing. To some extent, I felt his opinion is indeed correct.

3. Woman loves innocent man, but she also wants some point of maturity to choose him as husband:

Susan (Elizabeth Perkins) played a magnificent role in this film. She shows how cruel and ruthless it can be working inside a corporate in the city of New York. Here people can do anything to secure a job or earn a position.

Her true seductive nature to ride on the corporate ladder was touched by humanity when she came closer to know Josh, (who got a low-level job at MacMillen Toy Company. A chance encounter with the owner Mr.MacMillen of the company leads him to a promotion testing new toys).


Picture: At a kid’s fair Josh spotted Susan’s cheek filled with melted ice cream, when she licked the ice cream at once. From the film, Big (1988).

4. In love, there are sacrifices:  

Throughout the film, Elizabeth Perkins acted very well in Susan’s character. Especially at the end when she was decided to marry Josh but came to know the truth that Josh is just a boy of thirteen, she accepted the whole matter very honestly. She respected the choice of Josh (Tom Hanks) to turn again into thirteen-year-old and enjoy his life as a child.

5. If the same story will remake in Bollywood what will happen?

– Instead of Zoltar, in Bollywood it will be Bajrang Bali.

– When Josh asked Susan to come back to thirteen again, in Bollywood version Susan will say “yes”, and she will jump on it. (If the director follows the original story then perhaps he will read this review and prove I am wrong). :)

– It will be obvious that Bollywood version will include at least six – seven songs which will increase an extra hour for the Indian audience.

Hope you enjoy this review. Do not miss the film, Big (1988) if you still not watched.

Preface: The Day, Hope Never Doomed!

Long long ago when the earth is created and separated into different lands. The water on the surface is still together. The time when many great emperors arose and many battles were lost. The sun never sets in some kingdom when many were doomed. The earth stores secrets that we are unable discover them all. The possessive human nature corrupted us.

The forsaken land is ruled by the animal kingdom. Vertebrates, molluscs and arthropods all learned to live together by satisfying each other’s need.

We due to our intelligence and imagination built the kingdom of God which are driven by power, jealousy and to govern the unclaimed resources. The Kings and Queens declared war so that we, the commoners can remember the tragic history of the past.

Politics was not made for the wellness of the society. Long ago it was established against strong and wise men to control them. They were very few people who were the knights, scientist, artist, mathematician, poet, magician, mutants etc. There were good and bad people too.

Then some people with average intelligence, leadership, beauty, good speaker, who wanted more to live their life lavishly, they politicize the mass voice. They understood if the mass protest against something then even God becomes helpless. Leaders created panic in common human mind to stand against the wisemen. They influenced the knights, the bravest of the mankind to fight endless battles. Centuries the fight between knowledge and power still continues. The rulers of the earth are born. So does, forever the gods and the kings are ruled together.

It is a simple pattern in politics, by the name of God people are protected by the laws. We are the pawns accepted almost everything being silent and tossed by our leaders, good and bad with a single coin. But if we feel something wrong, then more or less we all have our leadership skills to guide ourselves to lead our own way.

Always love,

Queen Elizabeth II & Yoga (A Theme Painting)

Rich and powerful people always made the history. There is no history written for the ordinary people. 21st June 2015 was the first International Day of Yoga recognised by the United Nations.

Almost 3000BC ago Yoga invented in India by common people to stay healthy. I think this is a revolutionary success of the common people that they are able to teach the rich, how to take care of the health? I felt proud. This painting, I copied from a street artist’s common art.
