Quick Review - Revolution 2020 by Chetan Bhagat

Quick Review of "Revolution 2020". 

Well written, but nothing Revolutionary! Just another Bollywood kind of story, with a "Smart" Title (it was released when Anna's movement was strong).

Too much details about IIT coaching classes and procedures in the first half, which drags at a snail's pace... Chetan Bhagat is not rising above IITs and IIMs... 

The story drags a lot till the climax, which is a stupid Bollywood trick, and becomes very predictable.

Many underdeveloped characters (specially the second lead - Raghav).

Too many slangs (especially the ones in Hindi) also/may put a reader off.

Much better was expected from Chetan Bhagat... I will give 2 out of 5 stars for Chetan Bhagat's Revolution 2020. It's just another love triangle, with no emphasis on Revolution!
