The novel is set in Varanasi. Chetan Bhagat initiates the story through the central character of Gopal. It is through Gopal's narration of his life to the author that we are introduced to Raghav and Aarti. The story revolves around these three characters. While Gopal comes from a poor family, Raghav comes from a well-off family. Both set out to achieve success and realise their dreams. While Gopal's main motive is to seek financial wealth, Raghav has always wanted to bring in a revolutionary change in the political arena of the country.
As circumstances may have it, both the boys fall in love with the same girl, Aarti. However, Aarti eventually falls for Raghav. The climax of the story reaches its peak when Aarti harbors feelings for Gopal too. Who will she finally choose? In the meantime, Gopal, through unfair means and with the help of a corrupt politician Shukla, starts an engineering college. Raghav goes on to become a successful journalist and begins to use this power to expose Shukla's wrongdoings. It is indeed an interesting tale that has been realistically depicted against the background of a real world where corruption looms large. It brings to light the corrupt system of education in India.
Revolution 2020 was published in 2011 and turned out to be a bestseller.

Another great classic from Mr. Chetan Bhagat. Typical narration style. detailed expression of emotions and amazing vocabulary.
