    Description

    Revolution 2020 is an engaging tale of two best friends who fall in love with the same girl. The novel is set against the backdrop of rampant corruption, which one friend yields to, but the other fights.

    Summary Of The Book

    The novel is set in Varanasi. Chetan Bhagat initiates the story through the central character Gopal. It is through Gopal’s narration of his life to the author that we are introduced to Raghav and Aarti. The story revolves around these three characters. While Gopal comes from a poor family, Raghav comes from a well-off family. Both set out to achieve success and realise their dreams. While Gopal’s main motive is to seek financial wealth, Raghav has always wanted to bring in a revolutionary change in the political arena of the country.

    As circumstances may have it, both the boys fall in love with the same girl, Aarti. However, Aarti eventually falls for Raghav. The climax of the story reaches its peak when Aarti harbors feelings for Gopal too. Who will she finally choose? In the meantime, Gopal, through unfair means and with the help of a corrupt politician Shukla, starts an engineering college. Raghav goes on to become a successful journalist and begins to use this power to expose Shukla’s wrongdoings.

    It is indeed an interesting tale that has been realistically depicted against the background of a real world where corruption looms large. It brings to light the corrupt system of education in India. Revolution 2020 was published in 2011 and turned out to be a bestseller.

    Huge disappointment

    With lots of hopes ,i'd ordered this book.Once booked i kept keeping a check on the shipping !! once received ,i'v read the book immediately ,but it was a huge turn off!! Even still i am confused ,what he was trying to say. is it that true love will be a failure or only professionally successful people are worthy of it or girls dont have brains to think and they will easily bounce to anyone anytime??:( ...CB had given a greater blow now..his two books one night at call center and 3 mistakes w...

    Kane and Abel a tale of two cities

    well not that I am a huge fan of his writing but never thought his writing was absolute trash either. Well, that is until I read this book. Absolutely depressing - to the extent of giving me a hangover ( if that's possible). The worst part however is not how depressing the story is but how unoriginal it seems. Its a smart marketer's (ya, the IIM Background helps) attempt at combining (or should I use the cliche 'inspired by') parts of books like Kane and Abel, A tale of two cities and well if...

    Let's just write a screenplay

    Took about 3 hours to finish the book and the feeling post reading - WTF. Seriously, it is just a 70's Hindi movie love triangle with one giving up the girl for other and why - a sudden self realization (i was wondering why wasn't a see-in-the-mirror-talk-to-yourself-realize-you-are-doing-wrong scene there). Spare yourself the headache.

    disappointed!

    The story dosen't do justice with title Revolution 2020, I was disappointed as in all the earlier books of CB title have been the soul of the story. its just a story about a poor man Gopal, who gets corrupted to earn easy money. His friend Raghav is a sort of revolutionist. The story revolves around Gopal, and has only little instances about Raghav, while quite a lot have been explained about how Gopal gets corrupted, but rarely about how Raghav acts as whistle blower.
    Would have love it if i...

    I doubt its Chetan Bhagat's work !

    Iam unable to bring myself to the reality that it took me 3 days to read chetan bhagat's latest book.This book has compelled me again to look beyond Indian writers because surprising it may seem yet its true that Chetan bhagat too stands in the same league of those nebulous Indian(read'IIT')writers who take to writing novels not out of passion but out of fashion.
    Sorry chetan but this book would soon be seen in chemists' shop as a replacement for sleeping pills.

    Bed time stories are better than this

    I have been hearing about Chetan Bhagat's books for the past couple of years from my friends but never really read one. Having seen so much hype about this book, made myself up to read one of his books for the first time and bought "Revolution 2020". My immediate impression after reading the book was "What exactly made him an acclaimed author?". Honestly, I see nothing fascinating in this book. I heard far better bed time stories than this when I was a kid.

    I started the book with an enthu ...

    A Zabardast'i'...!!!

    I already did waste my precious 10 hours in reading this crap, so will review it in one liner:

    "A stingy piece of shit that even greediest pig refuses to have...!!!"

    Mr. Bhagat you lost something in b\w time... please attain it back and then dare to write; and do not dare to waste our money, time and most importantly our faith on Indian authors by creating such a meaningless mess!
    Thank you

    Fast and easy read, but that's it

    You won't get bored as he uses the same underdog formula again.
    You won't hate him for all that self praise he gives himself in the book.
    You won't grow tired of reading multiple paragraphs of what the girl is wearing.
    You won't put down the book which will ask for all your sympathy repeatedly.
    Hell, you won't even throw the book out when some predictable Bollywood ishtyle melodrama and stuff happens.

    But you will think at the end of it all "So what about Revolution 2020? All I read was a lo...
