All the Old Knives
If you are a fan of a good cat-and-mouse story, get your spy gear ready, because this thriller promises to keep you guessing throughout its runtime. Chris Pine and Thandiwe Newton star as CIA operatives under investigation after a botched rescue operation. The longer the investigation goes, the longer the suspects list gets. 


Abhay (S3)
“Bigger, bolder and even more ruthless” is how showmakers are describing the return of Abhay Pratap Singh. Season three will see the supercop (played by Kunal Khemu) face up against hardened murderers played by Tanuj Virwani and Rahul Dev, and more importantly Vijay Raaz who seems to be the head of a cult.


Gullak (S3)
This light-hearted comedy is back for its third season, and continues to revolve around the Mishra family. The series showcases different stories and everyday experiences of a middle-class family in a small town. The cast includes Jameel Khan, Vaibhav Raj Gupta, Harsh Mayar, Sunita Rajwar and Shivankit Singh Parihar among others.
