Chetan Bhagat - Revolution 2020 and a real review

The new thing by Chetan Bhagath  has hit the stores now. So here is a brief review of this new arrival.
If you are a fan of him, I think you will not be disapointed this time also. The book also has a social perspective as seen in the title "Revolution 2020". The overwhelming desire of both students and parents who flock into Kota to get training to crack the IIT's and AIEEE is depicted very nicely with both hilarious and sarcastic description of the coaching institution and its methods. The losers life is heart warming. The book also takes a hit at our present educational system and the corruption that exists which create hurdles for honest people to enter into the management of these educational institutions. And further gives a clear picture of how law is circumvented by the high profiles in setting up and running these institutions. The author has finally come out of the all romance book and invested a considerable time in the book for social issues related to education system and corruption. And of course, he does not disappoint in the romance section also. After all it is the story of two boys who love the same girl.

The good part of this book is that it takes us deep into how corruption cycle are the envelopes (bribe) taken and everyone from a political leader to education system have lost their set of values and how corruption affects everyone in society. This books has an enticing love tale with success/failure elements in it, which almost every teenager experiences in his/her life.

The movie material is that one of two heroes; Gopal, instead of failing in his educational life becomes phenomenally successful/richer than his IIT-BHU graduate counterpart Raghav. Both boys love same girl Aarti from their class and Aarti has nothing to do the in the book except playing a girlfriend material role.
