Revolution 2020 Review:

Better call it ’CORRUPTION 2011’


I had finished reading this book before two weeks and was in the real dilemma, how to review this book? After thinking lot, I have finally penned it down.

This review is my own personal view and most of his fans or Chetan Bhagat himself Disagree with this one. Be free to leave your Comment.

Revolution 2020
Love, Corruption and Ambition.

Title of the book looked promising, but Never judge a book just because of its cover.



Preview-
2 States was the first fiction book I’d ever read and though it was not so enjoyable book, reading chetan bhagat had helped me start reading with the book. Later as I read two of his other book, 5 Point someone and 3 Mistakes of my life, I made my mind to read his new releasing book ‘Revolution 2020’. Its price through flipkart.com was 84 and pre- ordered it 2 months before its release.

Story-
3 Childhood friend:- In the city of Varanasi, Gopal, Aarti, and Raghav grow up from same school to have their career in different field. Raghav’s talent helps him reach IIT at Banaras Hindu University while Gopal, the poor guy goes to kota to prepare and repat the engineering entrance exam again. During these time Aarti and Raghav gets close to each other and fall in love. This brings dispute among Gopal and Raghav.

Raghav interested in journalism more than engineering has an ambition to work against corruption while despite not going to college Gopal turns out to be director of Ganga-tech engineering college. Then rest of story is all about Raghav attempts to fight against corruption and his indirect fight with Gopal.

Yeah, The book seems like a love story too… But if it is actually a love story, I am confused…

And not to forget, the main content of the book… Lots of f**k word included with few other vulgar words
                                          
Is this book focused about revolution?

No.
It is not. It never seems like he has stressed on this topic. Only after two-third of book is completed, he tries focusing on the main content while before that it seems he has filled book with umpteen numbers of boring topics just to create a background. Even he lacks with proper idea to conclude this book forgetting the title of book and forgetting if he is writing an improper love story or anything else?

Here he has shown the extreme limit of corruption done to establish a institute and educational system and have brought among the public. From a first job of Building construction to AICTE approvement, Mr Bhagat has shown number of corruptions. Let us look how if this theme will bring some clear reality among the people. He has included corruption done by MLA and his condition after resigning from the post. But he has hardly penned something about called revolution....

So title ’Corruption 2011’ would have been the better than ’Revolution 2020’

Even in this book, he has dealt about the Student Pressure during competitive exams and their inability to reach the victory target. This is something which many of the books and movies have included many times. He himself being student of IIT and IIM, he could have written something about dark horse winning the race or something which can really inspire students. He lacks it here.. Overall he lacks the creativity and new idea in this book


In this book, he again stresses about ‘failure student’ and yeah, let me clarify, in all of his books, the failure student are the compliment set of IIT’s and IIM’s. Just because he has reached County’s most of the prestigious college means he is a winner? Is it that all students out of IIT and IIM are failure student?
Kindly please stop this attitude because don’t forget, if anyone will be reading your book, they will not be any iitians or iim student but just a simple and average students.



Is this book a readable one?

Initially, what I had was little praise of words to Mr. Bhagat for including the topic of Corruption in his book Revolution 2020. May be it was his inner desire to write about such topic. I appreciate his writing the book in such a simple words. His attempts to reach youths not knowing higher level English is a type of gambling he has played, and maybe he’ll succeed reaching first timers too.

But again you get in a doubt if Revolution 2020 is a book written by a writer who claims himself as ‘India’s most loved and respected writer’?

He has nothing more than describing the Dress or clothes of girl and you hardly can find any sensible or creative literature used here. The language used in book itself is easier than Gulmohar book of lower-secondary school and not to forget errors and printing mistakes in book.

Rather than spreading social awareness in his book, It looks like his vision to write a book is more about making familiarity with people about vulgar words. His adaptation with the ‘sex’ in every of the book and inclusion of ‘f**k word’ in almost every of the alternate pages proves it.

Mr. Bhagat, is it what you want to spread among the people? We all know many of the writers follow the same procedure but how about starting the revolution of writing books with gentle word?

With all these, his claim of being India’s most loved and respected writer contradicts.


My Conclusion-

I had respect for Chetan Bhagat as writer, but I don’t think I will be reading any of his upcoming books unless it will be with top class gentle language.

I don’t mind people reading this book, but if you are among those gentle people who believe in the decency and if you are those who hate vulgar words, please don’t read this book because you may end up your mind filled with dirty words lot earlier you finish this book.

And Dear Chetan Bhagat, Next time you write another book, please mention the vulgarity class of the language you are using in it.

My rating 2 out of 5

  1. I read this book during a train journey to lessen the boredom. If you forget about the name of the book and overlook many mistakes then this is the book for reading when you have nothing else to do. . Truly, this book is about the corruptions in the education business without knowing much about it. The language of this book is such that any body with a very little knowledge of English may read it. The common thing in all his books is that he never attempted to go deep into the topic because he has a little knowledge in it or perhaps in that way the common readers may walk away.
