Published in the year 2005, One Night @ The Call Center is a novel that revolves around the lives of six call center employees, and the phone call that brought about a dramatic change in their lives.
Summary Of The Book
One Night @ The Call Center is a book that covers the lives of six call center employees working for Connexions, a call center located in Gurgaon. In the beginning of the book, the readers are presented with a frame story describing a train journey, during which the author meets a girl who desires to tell him a story. However, there was one condition that he had to adhere to if he wanted to hear the story. This condition specified that he had to base his second book on the story.
The book talks about how the employees receive a phone call from God during their work timings at the call center. The characters in this novel include Radhika, Esha, Shyam, Priyanka, Varun, and Military Uncle. These six characters are deeply disturbed by the events taking place in their own lives, and choose to focus on their problems rather than trying to find a way out of them.
In this book, Bhagat throws light on the lives of the individuals in present day India, who are residing in the metro cities. The language utilized by the author is simple, and contains witty remarks on urban culture and relationships. The author makes use of words that are associated with that region in the country, thereby increasing the readability of this book.
One Night @ The Call Center was published in 2005 and received a favourable response. The book was adapted into a movie that was released in 2008, titled Hello, starring Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan, Amrita Arora, Gul Panag, and a host of other actors.

One night wasted reading thisMy first book of Chetan Bhagat was "Revolution 2020". That book, may be, good for first time readers but I felt it's a naive novel with a ludicrous plot. Being optimistic, i gained the courage to give a try reading any of his other books. Upon my friends suggestion, in this regard, I bought this.

inspirationalthis book is a good inspiration for how to handle your problem.. over here shyam a guy who works in d call center his problems are shown and how he handles it but actually he doesn't handle it but gets messed up so here its a thing to learn how to handle situations like this and most importantly you should not loose your confidence at any state keep faith in yourself to know what i am saying do read the book.. its good..

One of the worst books ever writtenEverything about this book is utter rubbish. If you like this book you either have a flair for ridiculously unrealistic drama or you've probably not read anything before. While that goes for any chetan bhagat book in general, this one is the worst of the lot! Beware...throw your money down the drain instead of purchasing this book!

Good for those who don't know what call center is all aboutI am pretty sure that the author Chetan Bhagat must never had visited any call center and the estimation he made about call center working is utter nonsense and far from the reality. The portrait of Most of his characters are not specific to call center and can be found in any walk of life. The Information / fact about call center ethics, Training culture etc. are not hard to imagine or found. He called an average American, as lame as an 10 years old Indian kid, but my questions to Indians is "Can they expect their 70 Years old Grandmother to rip off an computer CPU and then put it back again … (Expand)

One night @ without workI don't know but I felt something was missing... the incident of Qualis getting stuck in pit doesn't appear to be part of the story and somehow looked forced to make entry for GOD... so that Mr. Bhagat can add his value proposition (philosophy)... I don't see anything wrong in it but felt that content of God's conversation could have been better.

PatheticPathetic writing. This has made clear to the world that Chetan Bhagat doesn't just have the skills of a writer. He should probably choose writing for Bollywood masala movies. Stay away from this book and save few bucks and some time.

Good but not the bestOne night @ the call center is a fun read, clearly exposing the brutality experience by people struggling for living. But it has some masala flavors added to it. When the story ends, the male and the female lead kiss in the road. Come on, it happens only in cinemas.

Very Very poorI thought after reading Three mistakes and Revolution 2020 this will be as good as those but really very bad writing... i can call it immature. Of course flipkart did a nice job delivering in time as promised great job...
