Book review: Revolution 2020 by Chetan Bhagat

Revolution 2020 is the story of three childhood friends: Gopal, Raghav, and Aarthi. The story is setup in the holy-city of Varanasi. Gopal and Raghav are schoolmates from the childhood and share the same bench in school. Aarthi is also from the same class. Gopal loves Aarthi from the school days.

The story’s narrator is Gopal. I am not going to tell you the entire story and be a suspense spoiler.

Gopal comes from a filmy-Indian-middle-class background. Raghav is from an almost well to do family, where as Aarathi comes from a kind of bureaucratic and political family. Three of them have their own ambitions in life. Gopal wants to be a rich man, Raghav wants to change the world, Aarthi wants to become an air hostess.

After the failure in getting through JEE and AIEEE exams, Gopal is forced by his father to repeat the exams next year. But Raghav secures a good rank and joins the top college in Varanasi. Aarthi falls in love with Raghav.

What happens when Gopal returns to Varanasi after his one year stint at cracking the entrance exams is the main part of the story. Apart from losing his love, he couldn’t find a seat in engineering to fulfill his father’s dream.

How Gopal chooses corruption as an aid to become a successful person while Raghav tries to change the world(read as India) with his revolutionary ideals is what the middle pages of the book are all about.

In the ending, things kind of change though, and you will be left to yourself to wonder who is right and who is wrong. Except for a faint hint in the end, Chetan doesn’t really judge what Gopal does is good or bad.

Following the tradition of the latest Bollywood movies, you can find few swearing words which start with letters b and a and f. I leave it your imagination to figure out those words. I really wonder whether Chetan added those words in the drafts after those movies are released or those words were there from the beginning.

Few of my favorite sentences:

I am reproducing few of the sentences I have underlined while I was reading the book.

People come to my city to feel the presence of god, but I could feel her presence everywhere.

Ease of cremation is one solid advantage of being in Varanasi. The death industry drives the city.

Stupid people go to colleges. Smart people own them.

We don’t fix cases, we fix the people in the cases.

What I din’t like? (And may be you don’t like too)

You will miss the witty observations for which Chetan is known for. Two States has a lot of lol-moments for the reader. But in this book, even though there are few sentences which make you lol, the obvious fun factor is missing when you compare this to his previous books.

The story becomes too predictive in few places and you might as well skip through paragraphs at times.

I guess, in some places, the character development is not handled well. There were not enough reasons shown to us by the author previously in the book to make us believe the characters’ actions. The actions come as a surprise, but they don’t convince us to believe.

The first hundred pages don’t really add much to the entire theme of the book. It could have been easily conveyed in less pages without really degrading the overall effect of the story.

I would have liked the book more if it had handled the ‘revolution part’ in more detail instead of focusing more material on the triangular-love-story. May be Bollywood needs it.

So what do I have to say finally?

I usually hate giving a rating based on five stars. It’s really useless to rate a book like that.

If you are a Chetan Bhagat’s fan, I am sure you will definitely like this book. But I am not sure whether you will like it better than any of his previous books.

Even if you are a fan of Chetan Bhagat, you will be disappointed if you expect a lot of revolutionary stuff from the book. It is a regular love story with a modern backdrop and written in a typical Chetan Bhagat style. The book’s title could have been anything else, for Revolution 2020 is not the major theme in the book.

Four books after his bestseller debut novel, Five Point Someone, I guess Chetan is unable to re-create the same magic like he did with his first book.

I think Revolution 2020 is a good book, but not as revolutionary as one might guess from the book’s title and book’s back-cover summary. Of course, I don’t expect in people changing the world just by reading books. But from the book’s title and pre-release interviews and promotions on the Internet, it is reasonable for an average reader to expect more ground breaking stuff than a regular two-boys-love-the-same-girl-love-story sprinkled with corruption in India.

It’s a really good read if you like reading light fiction.

If you like reading books to pamper your literary senses, definitely this book is not for you.

If you haven’t read Chetan’s books before, I would say you better start with Five Point Someone.

If you are too lazy to read books, then wait, I am sure this book has everything in it to be a Bolloywood movie.

    I was curious too about this book if not excited. If we actually go back to Chetan Bhagat’s books, it is only Five point someone and Two states that did spectacularly well. For the others, three mistakes and one night@call center went mediocre and I wouldn’t even begin mentioning the literary content in them. But what works very well for Chetan Bhagat is his innovation, networking, humour and IIM brand. He has utilised the brand well and also demonstrated what innovation and networking can bring to the table. Btw, nice review!

    Hey Nice one ..Chandra.
    Though i usually don’t read fiction, I had read 5 point .. and 2 states and after reading those, i felt that another one from Chetan Bhagat of this genre and his fan following wil go southwards and here he is with another bollywood masala flick printed on a book. Not sure why he has named it Revolution 2020, i initally thought it would have some flavor of APJ’s India 2020!
    Thanks for the review, you saved quite a few bucks and valuable time :-)

    the love story is too intense and the typical CB humor is missing. The character of Raghav seems too idealistic to be real and ofcourse the story has no suprising twist and turns. Not the usual CB stuff but still 140 Rs. is not much for this book.

    ” I am sure this book has everything in it to be a Bolloywood movie.” Felt the same after finishing the book. Should have waited for the movie instead of wasting reading this.

    Had it been from Raghav’s point of view the title would have made a complete sense.

  10. Posted October 12, 2011 at 8:48 pm | Permalink

    With no offence I think Chetan Bhagat should start trying for story-editor in a C-grade bolly movie. He’s a great person with some very high intellect but he’s such a bad writer – his plots are more simplistic than Samajwadi party’s party manifesto. His presence in the literary field is in itself a disaster with no less ravage than a Hello or a Sohail Khan starrer but I love this guy. It’s because of him I’ve developed my own personal yardstick to judge people by knowing their affinity towards his books ! CHEERS

    Raghav’s journalism part was poor. And the way Raghav wrote about the GAP scam..!!! LOL… Pretty childish.
    As like everyone, i read CB’s subsequent books expecting the feel and enthu ‘Five Point Someone’ gave the readers. Hard luck this time too :(
    Hoping for a better one CB sir..

    Bhagat’s fifth novel is too filmi and definitely devoid of his trademark humour except at places. Chetan Bhagat reminds me of my favourite author RK Narayan whose works have remained enduring. But if he continues to write with Bollywood in mind, he may come up with more mundane fare. His forte is that he knows the pulse of today’s youth: his thought process, his lingo and his aspirations. Without any literary pretensions, Bhagat can tell a story set in urban India like only he can and win over readers. Only in this instance, he falls a few notches down. Better luck next time!?

    NICE REVIEW VVK!

    There is a number in his every book, and now, you see, he has completed digit 1 to 5 -
    1: ONE night @ call center
    2: 2 states
    3: 3 mistakes of my life
    4- digit-sum of 2020 adds up to 4.. thats y, r2020
    5: FIVE point someone

    may be he will include SIX in his next book, if he continues the trend

    another trivia about CBs books is-
    in his every book, central character holds Lord SriKrishna’s name, as
    HARI, SHYAM, GOVIND, KRISH and now GOPAL.. [resp.]

    CB must be looking out for more names of Lord SriKrishna for his next book!

    I read this book… I must say it is fun to read it.. The best one was 2 states… Nothing exceptional but a nice timepass read…

  17. Posted October 17, 2011 at 6:11 pm | Permalink

    I have just finished reading it and I must say that I am not impressed. I had pre-ordered the book online and forgot about it, so there was no anticipation involved when I started reading the book.

    Story starts similarly to “Three mistakes of my life” with CB ending up in a hospital with the hero named, not surprisingly, Gopal. Story starts in similar fashion with Gopal narrating the story and CB ending it up in a book to be shared with his readers. Disappointingly enough, CB misses on the fact that his fans expect a certain level of quality from his books. CB’s stories end up as movies but this one seems like it is inspired by some SRK movie. With clichéd scenes like Gopal pissing off heroine, Aarti, by using two prostitutes and his change of heart on watching a poor dying kid who haunts him in the dreams, this book is pretty disappointing for CB fans.

    The story is not original and refreshing as Five points someone(FPS), not captivating & gripping as Three Mistakes of My Life(TMML) and definitely not interesting as Two States(TS). Skip it if you can.

    Fun fact: You may not have noticed but names of all the Heroes of CB’s stories are spinoffs of Lord Krishna’s Name, starting with Hari, Shyam, Govind, Krish and now Gopal. This is my original deduction and is published here for the first time.

    The book is not up to the mark .rather i say its not CHETAN BHAGAT”S level.
    what i can say.. itz an ordinary love story ( with a small touch of erotica ).. thts all !! some quotes are truly amazing .. but rests are very ordinary .

    in a conclusion , i can say , Mr. Bhagat disappointed me .

    Mr. Bhagat created his own reader with suitable writting and good representation skills. I feel he is very much stuck into similar kind of structure.Most of the stories contains IIT, JEE or friendship as backbone.Neverthless he tried to pick up the corruption in education system by this book.Would like to see him writting in diversified subjects like Spiritual,Motivational instead of only love and corruption.

    Hi Chandra,

    After having read the book, I very much agree with your review of the book. I am a big fan of Chetan Bhagat’s books and have read all 5 of them. If I have to compare Revolution 2020 with his previous books, then for sure this one doesn’t live upto the reputation of “5 Points Someone” or “2 States – The story of my Marriage” but is definitely better than the “3 mistakes…….”.

    But according to me, it is not a bad read. Of course, we cannot expect miracles from the man everytime. The book surely had a predictable flow and a common love triangle but at the same time it keeps you engrossed as you want to know what these characters are upto. As far the the title is concerned, I have no problems with it as I enjoyed this love triangle more than I would have enjoyed a Revolutionary story. As a fact, no book can tell us how a revolution can be brought. It definitely gives an insight into our prevailing education system and the prevalant corruption associated with it. I liked the struggle made by Gopal and any aspiring student in our country can connect with the character as we all have been part of this insane education sytem with numerous loopholes. I also liked the love Gopal had for Aarti and his 100% honesty and feelings for her.

    I definitely had a nice time reading the book. Not a bad buy for me.

    “Revolution 2020″ is a perfect example of what could happen if you try to turn a sloppy Bollywood plot into a novel trying to cash-in on the corruption wave which gets relegated into backdrop becoz of a directionless love story. A Disastrous Revolution. The book lacks the aggressiveness in depicting the tussle between the two friends over a same girl. To justify the title, a few chapters have been added in the end with little significance to the storyline which is just a directionless love triangle with a very acute angle. Raghav, characters, center of the revolution theme, has not been brought out properly and has been pushed to the periphery because the story goes around the mess that Aarti creates. All the characters are weak. Chetan tries to give Gopal’s character a grey shade but fails poorly in doing so.
    Overall the book is not worth reading as neither it meets the expectations over the issue of corruption nor does it reflects Chetan’s earlier books’ cracking humour and grip on the story-line.

    I also think there are very less lol movements in 2020. Also its bit on a serious note and if some one like more of a light book, I will not recommend this book. I have like Chetan Bhagat’s first two books but not this one.
    I would give 2/5 for this book.

    guess i was expecting too much from my favorite writer..
    unlike the other stories this one does not have a happy ending and as happens in many of the Bollywood movies bhagat leaves the final decision to the readers..
    and as far as i can see there is no relation between the name and content of the story , except that the supposed villain runs a newspaper in the name and that is not even relevant in the story .. raghav dos’nt even come up as an important part in the story … hmm still its just a one time story .. not like i want to read that book again

    After reading five point someone and 2 states, this was definitely a let down. Somehow many scenes were too predictable and the title was misleading as one would probably expect some seriously ‘revolutionary’ story. I just read the book to know the end. If it was an older book I’d have probably just skipped everything and read a summary. Talking about the education system, politics, etc was fine but after a while it does tend to get quite boring, unlike his previous works, and you lose interest. Shifting to more serious issues is definitely not CB’s cup of tea. Hope in your next book you stick to your strengths and have more LOL moments, cause thats what your fans generally like! Hope for better books in the future!

    I agree with your reviews.CB has never been an literary writer. I dont read his books because they are great pieces of work. i read them because he can connect to the audience that is reading his books… how many times it must hv happened that you read some incident in one of his books and think… Damn that has happened with me… when you are reading his books you are not trying to keep up with the thoughts or visions of some great thinker… Its like you are listning to a story ur college room mate is telling you… this style of writing along with the dark yet funny mind thoughts is what made CB irresistible for many of his fans..[myself included]. Revolution 2020 lacks everything that i like about him. Lack of an original story, no funny quotient, underdeveloped characters… throw in a depressing and gloomy first half of the book, and you hv a less than mediocre book that fails on so many levels… the book has its strengths… no arguments there… but its just not enough to get the book to the level that we expect from him… but that does not mean that i wont be standing in front of the bookstore in my pyjamas early in the morning on the day of the release of his next novel… coz lets face it.. that’s who we indians are… overtly optimistic…

    first of all i like to say that this story was running into my mind like a movie for 2 days,i felt the story had really happened…chetan sir has written it very well influencing indian minds…chetan bhagat has written such a romantic tale of childhood friends between gopal and aarthi(their boat rides) i think chetan should have potrayed this childhood love into a happy wedding between gopal and aarthi…
    i dont know why chetan sir has twisted the climax part just because he is an iitian he should not have made raghav (iitian) marry aarthi..he should not potray like this iitans wished a better life than a twelveth class pass out…love of gopal for aarthi is very intense than compared to raghav’s .i wished gopal and aarthi joined together…anyway thanks for this triangular romantic tale chetan sir….revolution part is not no intense such that it does not emphasize on the title revolution 2020….

    I really upset about this book. It is flowless BOOK, the sorys end we know in 56 pages. and after that he just telling about Indias situation, there fore I read just 100 pages and read reviev. If Im not read the review , Im waste much of time. so THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY TIME.
