Revolution 2020 is a gripping and fast paced novel about love, corruption and ambition. The story delves into the underbelly of a small town, Varanasi, and explores the various hues in the characters of the protagonists in it. Bhagat unearths the darker side of the education system, and for that matter, love too.

In the small and historic town of Varanasi in India, two boys Raghav and Gopal fall in love with the same girl, Aarti. Both of them are intelligent, ambitious and are the best of friends, but destiny has something else in store for them. One of them wants to use his intelligence to make a lot of money and the other wants to create a revolution; but again, their plans are disrupted by their love.Gopal hails from a poor family and fails to get an admission to the best engineering colleges in the country.

Aarti hails from a powerful bureaucratic family, and her aim is to become an airhostess. Aarti falls in love with Raghav while Gopal is at Kota.The story starts when Gopal rises as the director of a new engineering college opened in Varanasi, with the power of MLA Shukla, a corrupt politician. He uses the legally strangled land of his uncle to manipulate and build the college. Raghav, on the other hand, completes his engineering and joins the largest selling newspaper Dainik as an intern. He starts shedding light on all the wrongdoings of Shukla and exposes him in public.Things take a different turn when Aarti starts developing a soft corner for Gopal.Who will win her love towards the end?Will Raghav's crusade against the corrupt system fail?Revolution 2020 is a gripping story of love, the corrupt educational system and clashing ambitions.Revolution 2020 got mixed reviews from critics and readers.

good one

actually the novel shows the relationship generally we had in our life as of friend vs love...so it somehow states one's mind thought and confusion...moreover the raghav idea's really made me strong...also knows some special fact about varanasi which i didn't know while living here
