The second season kicks off

The second season of ‘Falling Skies’ premiers on AXN at 9 pm on December 19.

The new season presents a compelling story with enough twists and plot points to keep viewers satisfied. Picking up months after the first season’s finale, the Overlord decides to speak to Tom.

 Given Tom’s knowledge, the Overlord looks to him as a historian. Speaking through a harnessed Karen, the aliens make an interesting comparison to humanity itself, by revealing that their actions are simply reflecting what the inhabitants of Earth have done many times over.

When ego interferes with love

In Khushi, Khushi (played by Kareena Kapoor) is a young college girl, who is very fond of her father (essayed by Amrish Puri).

When her wedding gets cancelled, she goes to Mumbai to study further. There she meets Karan (played by Fardeen Khan) quite by chance — and predictably, they fall in love.

 However, she becomes unsure of their relationship when she finds him in the company of another girl.

After completing their education, Khushi goes back home to an arranged marriage while Karan is all set to go settle in Canada.

But what of their love for each other? Tune in to the movie on December 19 at 1 pm on Zee Premier to find out.

Smiley had been forced out along with Control, the head of spy agency, after a disastrous mission in Hungary where a colleague, Jim Prideaux, was shot.
It was also an unhealthy time in the secret service, known affectionately by its members as the Circus, with several senior officers having developed a new source of information in the USSR — but refusing to share that person’s identity.

Smiley agrees to return and over the course of his examination, learns that the secret Soviet source has become the mainstay of the service, one that they soon plan to use to get at US intelligence information.
