I have read all his books, and I just couldn’t leave this book without reading. I have enjoyed his writing and I feel it stands out among other Indian Novels with different type of presentation. I liked his previous novel ” 2 States” and was expecting better. This is the first time I have read a book which is inspired by Bollywood movies and not the other way round ( wait! may be I can say second time becuase I have already read “Anything for you Mam” by Tushar Raheja).
Revolution 2020 revolves In Varanasi where river Ganga washes everybody’s sin. Gopal Mishra is madly in love with a girl called Arathi from his school days and struggling to tell his feelings to her becuase she keeps sending mixed signals and keep saying the word “friends”. When he is away for a while she falls in love with his friend Raghav who is rebellion and want to change the corrupted country from the scratch. But after coming back Gopal gets involved in corrupted system. Is it fight for rights and against corruption or fight to get the same girl? Whom will Arathi choose, a person who is corrupted and gives into corrupted system or the person who is fighting against the same system? Who is a good person here?
I had lot of expectations on this book but it turned out to be an average book. His books really do is to bring Bollywood home. Some scenarios are exactly make you feel as if you are reading a movie script. I hope to read better books in future from this author.
