    Description

    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 this

    My 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.

    I finished this book in single night which, at the end, made me feel that the night was simply wasted. The meekly existing veil of inclination towards chetan bhagat's books too simply burned up to ...

    One of the worst books ever written

    Everything 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!

    DONT BUY THIS BOOK EVEN IF YOU GET IT FREE OF COST

    The worst book of all times. You cant even call it a story...
    "The girl breaks up with his boyfriend,Shyam(call center agent). Her family arranges marriage with a Microsoft guy working in USA. The guy sends her his pic. Later, Shyam google searches and finds he is bald and he has put on a wig in the pic. For this reason, she ditches him and marries Shyam."
    Chetan Bhagat is riding on the success of 5 point someone.I would give 1 star for this 1 night totally wasted coz thats the least I could...

    One night @ without work

    I 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.

    The fourth ingredient for success doesn't go well with me... some times a failure breaks you so much that we can never achieve what you could have...

    Pathetic

    Pathetic 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 best

    One 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.

    The end was pretty idiotic

    The story starts by Chetan describing about the girl who he met during a train journey. This girl asks him to write a book based on 6people working in a call center. First Chetan doesn't agree with it. After hearing the story, he does. The girl helps him by giving some contacts so that he could have some research on it.
    The flop part is that, when the journey gets completed, the Chetan asks who she was. But, she disappears
