“2 STATES” is latest novel by currently India’s most popular author among the youths. Recently he was in the news not only for his literary talents but also for his clash through news channels with Aamir Khan and Vidhu Vinod Chopra over credit of superhot movie ‘3 Idiot’s story.
Plot of this novel is simple, no shocking element. A North Indian Punjabi boy falls in love with South Indian girl during their college days. At the end of college they decide to marry. Obviously their parents do not agree. So book is about how they convince their parents through some entertaining incidents. This fiction has very romantic and comic touches to it. Like his all other novels this is also highly entertaining. Surely someone is going to adapt this novel also for a Bollywood film. Characters of all his novels are youths and talks about youth’s tribulations. So young India loves his books and will love this one too. Although this book is also a fiction there are some links to his personal life. As he is also married to south Indian girl being a Punjabi boy.
Chetan Bhagat’s book might not win any literary awards but he will always be popular writer. As for this book if I have to rate this book I will give it 8 out of 10. Do read this book and enjoy.
