Book Look - #27

Revolution 2020 by Chetan Bhagat

Plot: The lives of two childhood friends take massive turns due a reputed engineering college seat and a girl - a friend of theirs. While the academically successful guy takes against a corrupt world with a pen leaving aside worldly gains, the loser of the love turns a crook and ends up owning a college and gets back his lost love, nearly..!

  • The book is a page-turner and has its highpoints, due credits to the author for that.
  • The dig at the screening system adopted by reputed colleges, the corruption in real estate & land deals etc. have been brought to the fore very well.
  • A girl, her betrayal & her two-timing etc. are unbearably repetitive and makes one think if Chetan is a big male chauvinist.
  • The book is a bit low on substance than it is on fantasising the dramas in a relationship.
