Chetan Bhagat’s 2 States revolves around Krish and Ananya, two IIM students in love who are faced with a common problem for an Indian love story – they belonged to two different states. Krish, the protagonist happens to be a typical Punjabi boy from Delhi and Ananya, a beautiful and smart south Indian girl from Chennai.
They fall deeply in love in a rather clichéd, quite Bollywood-like style, and of course it would be incomplete without a series of conflicts due to the differences in culture and backgrounds. So Chetan Bhagat introduces the most obvious barrier – Parents.
As the story progresses, there are a series of ups and downs in their relationship that they struggle to overcome in the name of love.

It is mostly based on Bhagat’s own life; as he narrates the story in first person. His easy style of writing is a relief, and we see glimpses of colloquial languages from south and north India as well. The addition of humor, works for the younger readers.

The story on the whole is pleasant, probably enjoyed more by the teens or the younger generation who aren’t looking for a serious read.
