Revolution 2020 is most talked fifth book by Chetan Bhagat, best-selling author of his previous four novels ‘Five point someone, Night @ call center, Three mistakes of my life and 2 states’. R2020 is a story of three childhood friends –  Gopal, Raghav and Aarti. Each one has their own ways to achieve success, fame and bring Revolution in India by 2020.

You may ask, so what, this is another Chetan Bhagat book which will include college, IIT and all,  No, Chetan Bhagath this time come out of college (IIT) stories and attempted some thing new and serious this time. Serious because, the story shows how our education system is corrupted till the neck, how our government offices works,  it has scams and how people who want to change the system get into the trouble.

The story is narrated by the Gopal’s perspective, where he tells his saga of life. The story revolves around three best friends from school.
Gopal – Who wants to make money using his intelligence.
Raghav – Who wants to bring the Revolution by using his intelligence.
Aarti – is the girl they both fall in love with.

This is the second novel, in which I noticed that authors don’t wants to give exact dates of the events in the book, instead they give you the names of the movies. Like in this book, you will see the names like ‘Main Hoon Na, Chak De India, Rock On’, you need to figure out the dates when the events are happening in the book based on the release dates of the movies mentioned in the book.

This book from page one will make you glued to it till end, it will take you to the Journey of Gopal’s Life, how much he faced the problems to make it to IIT or NIT, how he faced problems with setting up the college or proposing the girl he LOVED the must in the world. The book talks about our education systems and how system can be twisted by using the power of  ‘white envelope’.  The Character development of Gopal is pretty awesome as he is the main protagonist in this book, where as character development of Raghav and Aarti lack the details. Chetan Bhagat has handled the love triangle pretty amazingly, considering his previous books which doesn’t had any kind of love triangle.

Once upon a time, in small-town India, there lived two intelligent boys.
One wanted to use his intelligence to make money.
One wanted to use his intelligence to create a revolution.
The problem was, they both loved the same girl.

Welcome to Revolution 2020. A story about childhood friends Gopal, Raghav and Aarti who struggle to find success and love in Varanasi. However, it isn’t easy to achieve this in an unfair society that rewards the corrupt. As Gopal gives in to the system, and Raghav fights it, who will win?

Overall, A real page turner and great story and a must read, go ahead and do read it.  And by the way, Chetan Ji, Gopal is indeed a good person!
