More details 2 States by Chetan Bhagat is a story of a couple’s struggle to convince their respective families, in order to get married. Chetan Bhagat of Five point Someone and One night at Call Centre fame gives the readers a similar book with similar twist that one sees in a Bollywood movie. As the plot suggests, the book is very predictable and at no point do the readers are caught off guard. The character build up is practically nonexistent and the dialogues and lines sometimes edge on being cheesy and melodramatic. The characters of Krish and Ananya come from the North and South of India, respectively. The book definitely sheds light on the internal racism that exists within the society and how important it is to get societal approval for two people who wish to spend a life together. The entire novel is written in first person, but as Chetan Bhagat has proved time and again, his style is not at all literary or anything even close. It’s a onetime read just to see the cultural differences that exist within the Indian society. Hide details

More details It is very fantastic, enjoying, entertaining & pageturner reading.It was very awsome experiance to read this book.The plot is basically Punjbi-Tamilian warfront.

Bollywood masala is the flavour for the book but still enjoyable.Krish(Punjabi by birth) and Ananya (Tamilian) both fall fo each other while completing their MBA from IIM-A. After a no problem love story of two years ,a major problem is to be confronted-PARENTS.

As we all know for all north indians ,south indians are madrasi & for all south indians ,north indians are illiterates.:)

Anyways Krish attempts his best to get the marriage proposal accepted by ,not Ananya but her parents.Ananya on the other hand does all sort of things to get absorbed into Krish's family.

Ultimately what happens we all know.No marks for guessing.

But if you are a north-indian in south or a south-indian in north ,you will connect to the story and will certainly enjoy.Most of the situations are the one which can be found in real life.

This book actually tells you the thinking of Indians staying in India but still apart,still not accepting different cultures in the same country. Some moments can really leave you giggling and smiling for sure.

Do read atlest once.

More details With a repertoire of 3 best-sellers, Chetan Bhagat has developed an enviable fan base. His fourth Novel, 2 states, is reportedly inspired from his own story. Krish is a Punjabi boy from Delhi and Ananya is a tamilian from Chennai. It all starts at IIM Ahmedabad, where they met and fell in love. The story then moves to Delhi and Chennai and back, where both tries to convince the families and bridge the cultural differences. The story is an excuse to beat around age old ‘North India versus South India divide.’ But Bhagat’s writing style that makes it a satisfying read. The pace is fast and dialogues witty and clever. The jokes and humour come from fine observations about human nature and Bhagat keeps reader engaged and entertained. He finely taps the boisterous and over the top attitude of Punjabis and Delhites and subtleness of Tamilians. The novel has all the ingredients of Bollywood masala entertainer and Bhagat captures his reader well. Give it a try, this is one of his better works. Hide details

More details Chetan Bhagat’s Two States is like a Bollywood masala flick. Same done-to-death story but new glossy packaging. It has been written well and is really funny at some places. Bhagat’s comment on the difference between a North Indian’s and a South Indian’s lifestyle makes an interesting read. You cannot but giggle at the observations and say this is true.
However when you compare Bhagat’s popularity and fan following I feel the guy is good, but does not deserve the popularity and the rave reviews he has been awarded with.
