|Chetan Bhagat is the author of three blockbuster novels, Five Point Someone (2004), One Night at the Call Center (2005) and The Three Mistakes of My life (2008). All the three books have remained bestsellers since their release and have inspired major Bollywood films. The New York Times called Chetan the 'the biggest selling English language novelist in India's history.' Seen more as a youth icon than just an author, this IIT D/ IIMA graduate is making India read like never before.
His writing style is largely similar in all the first 3 novels. However, it is seen that the seriousness of the novels gradually went on increasing. Each novel has the basic character set. The Protagonist is a very normal kind of boy whom any Indian teenager can easily relate to. He is moderate in terms of thoughts and views and is not to assertive. However the agnostic stance of the Lead character in Three mistake is an exception. Besides, a special importance to sex is given in each of his books. The friends of the Protagonist are also of very common nature. The girls in the novels are shown in virtual bondage by their respective families. Yet even the girls can be easily compared to an average Indian girl. Thus, the novel has no weird characters and is really set in a typical Indian setting. The characters are all typical neighbourhood characters and this is what makes the novels a success.
Chetan also writes op-ed columns for leading English and Hindi newspapers, focusing on youth and national development based issues. Many of the issues raised by Chetan’s columns have been discussed in Parliament and among the top leadership of the country.
Chetan quit his international investment banking career in 2009, to devote his entire time to writing and make change happen in the country. He lives in Mumbai with his wife Anusha, an ex-classmate from IIMA and his twin boys Shyam and Ishaan.
Really appreciate the delivery of infibean on time. This book was very nice to read at a stretch. Also characters are explained nicely and touching. What tried to express through the book is done 100%. Its really interesting thing thread for a bollywood movie. Surely this story also having a scope for a hit movie. All the very best chetan . Continue writing Best of Luck
