Revolution 2020, Chetan Bhagat’s latest novel, has nothing to do with cricket if the name makes you think like that. In fact, it’s a love triangle set against the backdrop of massive, corrupt engineering coaching industry.

Gopal, the narrator/protagonist happens to be the son of a poor school teacher, who falls in love with a beautiful and rich girl Aarti during his school days, however for Aarti, Gopal was only a best friend with whom she can share everything.

Raghav, Gopal’s childhood friend, belongs to the class of Aarti and is a hotshot guy with heart of gold. Though both Gopal and Raghav were preparing for engineering, both have their own aspirations.
While Raghav wants to be a journalist and intends to bring about the social change, Gopal’s only ambition was to become rich. The story gets a twist when Raghav gets into Banaras Hindu University (BHU) and Gopal fails to make it to any reputed engineering college. His ailing father then borrows money to enroll him to a coaching institute in Kota.

Everything goes fine till he discovers something as shocking as hell, which changes him completely and what seems to be a love story in the beginning turns out to be a tale of revenge, corruption and lust.

Anyway, if you’ve loved his previous books you are going to love it too. For me, it’s worth of 3 out of 5 stars.

If this review helps you make a choice, do share it with me.
