Chetan Bhagat is back with his new book – Revolution 2020. The book is already one of the fastest online selling book in India – and we’ve no surprises. Chetan Bhagat’s first book “Five Point Someone” became one of the best selling book in India and there have been claims that “3 Idiots” – the most earning bollywood movie is inspired from the novel. The following books by Chetan got immense popularity and Chetan has reignited the book-love among Indian youngsters.

Revolution 2020 - Love Corruption Ambition

Revolution 2020 Book – Theme

The revolution 2020 book is Chetan’s 5th novel. The story revolves around the lives of three friends (two boys (Gopal & Raghav)and one girl (Aarti) ) from Varanasi who’ve different aspirations. The boys have different aspirations – One wants to use his intelligence to make money while the other wants to use his intelligence to create a revolution; and as the smart readers you are; you already know that they love the same girl. The three friends face the corrupt system (education system, I think) and society that rewards the corrupt. Gopal becomes the part of the system – by doing all the unfair things and making money; while Raghav fights against the system.

Chetan Bhagat Repeats

Years ago,  I discovered a pattern in Chetan Bhagat’s writing style. I wrote a detailed post titled “How To Write Like Chetan Bhagat” to which I received lot of mixed response. Few criticized me and few appreciated me. But looking at the excerpt of the book, I see that all the points I wrote are correct. I won’t be surprised to see a Bollywood flick in 2012 / 2013 starring “Shreyas Talpade (Gopal)”, “<Guess Who?>(Raghav)” and a South Indian heroine; directed by Rohit Shetty.

Buy Revolution 2020 By Chetan Bhagat Online

We know you are rushing to buy the book online. You can preorder the book from Flipkart (recommended for fast and guaranteed delivery) by hitting the following link. Flipkart’s got very attractive price on the book – Just Rs. 80! We’ll talk about the book again, once it is released. I think Chetan Bhagat’s PR will send me a book for review.

    I hope it’s not similar to “The Fountainhead”, which going by the above article, doesn’t seem too far fetched. I can’t say that I enjoyed Chetan’s all books, but “2 States” will always be a part of my library. I just wish that “Revolution 2020″ has some awesome puns in it too! Eagerly waiting! :)

    I agree with most of the people’s comment, 2 States is the best among all of them. Actually it seemed to me that I am reading about the story being continued from 5 point someone..that I feel is the 2nd best book of all his books. I felt IIT Grad now reached IIM and his new love story started…the way he narrates the scene is so vivid as if we our self are there and watching. Way to go Chetan I am huge fan of your writing….someday I may write too…that is what my friends say…:)

    Well… frankly I stopped reading CB after One night @ call center. He was horrible in that book. I had picked dat book after 5.Sm1 but was hugely disappointed. And I care not to read him any more.

    chetan bhagat is definitely one of the best writers in english language india has ever had…all his previous books have been successful in delivering the message they were expected to…and i am positively looking forward for this one as well. and as far as making movies on his books is concerned i believe good books should be made into movies so that they reacha wider audience.

    Dear friend, you might have found the pattern of the content,but the way in which he presents it,is unique. Even ‘The Bard’ borrowed contents generously ,but look what he did to them.

    Bhagat’s a fantastic writer.The 1st,3rd and 4th novels are good enough to forget about the terrible 2nd one.I’m QUITE sure,Rev 2020 will be rocking and even better than the previos ones:-)

    I’m a fan of Chetan’s writing. But it seems this time instead of his book being made into a movie….He has made a movie into a book. The film that the book resembles closely is “Hazaaron Khwahishien Aisi”.  Disappointed with this book. Hopefully he bounces back with some new inspiring writing.

      oh cm’on anonymous, grow up now boy. y u kind of people feel jealous for him, he got famous and you not. if givn a chance u would be more than happy to get his place. wht is wrong in his writins i cant figure out, exept those sex encounters. man he speaks for common people, his story heroes are someone we find very eaasily around us there r millions of them actually, may be we ourselves, who r mostly ignored, not listened by the cunning ones like u. cmon man, they too deserve a life. they got girls in the stories, and u kind of just cant accept it.

    This one is disappointing if you compare it wid Two states ot FPS. But still it manages to touch your heart. all the grief for the reader is compensated in the climax. Superb climax. Though it has some weak links.

    this book r_2020  is good less reality and more planned story – makes a person good while reading –  but wrong message goes out – people (boys) reading it will more turn towards gopal  in there dreams siping there dring with favorite music  to listen and will bypass the original idea ll never be discussed – and at last all (B) ll be waiting for there  SHUKALAji

    i am kind of guy not so patient to read books but it was my friend who forced to read it.. really this is the first book i read.. totally awesome story. gopal shouldn’t have cheated aarthi this way by bring other gals to his room.. gopal deserves aarthi but his mistakes made him lose.. I am seriously depressed after reading it.. hope it is just a story and no one have faced such a sad story in their life…
    one question( if anyone knows pls do mail to my id : sreeramraj4791@gmail.com) is this story real one or just fiction ???

    a long story can be termed a novel when it contains literary terms ,expressions,emotions and concept.No doubt the book is good but stress is laid on just candid enjoyment for the readers.So I will expect much better next time
