Chetan Bhagat’s latest novel Revolution 2020 did not satisfy me as a reader. With a decent pace at the beginning the plot and the pace just drops towards the middle till the end.
This love triangle story has nothing exceptional. Very predictable moves and twists. The writing is a bit mature and hilarious at certain places. And that’s about it. A very average read.
For those who’d like to know a bit about the plot – Gopal, Raghav and Aarti are childhood friends, staying in Varanasi. They grow up together and the love triangle forms. Gopal loves Aarti who in turn loves Raghav. Since the trio belong to the different social strata there is complexity. Gopal goes to lengths to win Aarti and in his struggle indulges in wrong means. Raghav, a righteous man, wishes to bring about a revolution with his morals and ethics. Aarti just dolls up more than half the times to sit pretty. Oh, btw she wants to be an air hostess.
Love, Corruption, Ambition are supposed to be the basis of the novel, but is seems like CB lost track of it all mid-way. The story becomes too boring and cinematic in its approach. I thought it would address the growing corruption in the country but sadly the novel fails to do that.
I wasn’t impressed by this one.
