My Rating : 5/10
Revolution 2020 is the story of childhood friends Gopal and Raghav and their love interest Aarthi. It is set in the holy city of Varanasi. The story revolves around Gopal who struggles in his childhood and finds ways to overcome difficulties. It takes us thru the corruption in Indian politics, money involved in educational institutions, coaching centers for IITs etc.
What I thought about it
This is a typical Chetan Bhagat. When I say that, anyone who likes reading Chetan Bhagat will love reading this as well. If you are not a fan, give it a pass. I share a love hate relationship with the author. I feel that his books do not have the standard to be included as a literature. But I like the quick read aspect of his books.
This book also involves the usual Chetan masala of love, friendship, patriotism, corruption etc. It is a quick read. Don’t expect a classic out of this.
