16 REASONS WHY CHETAN BHAGAT IS 'THE NEW GENERATION YOUTH ICON'

Everywhere you turn around you see teenage children repeat his name over and over again; while berserk boys might thrive hard to steal a glance at him and even parents might wait patiently just as eager to do the same.

We take this opportunity to talk about the mild-mannered, be-spectacled star and prove to you why Chetan Bhagat is the New Gen Youth Icon.

2). CHETAN’S BOOKS TALK OF INITIATING CHANGE IN THE SOCIETY LIKE LESS CORRUPTION, LESSER POVERTY, BETTER POLITICIANS ETC.

3 idiots

 

3). HE DOESN’T SPIN FALSE TALES IN HIS BOOKS; AS IN MOVIES WHERE HEROES ZOOM IN AND OUT AGAINST GRAVITY OR BECOMING ENTREPRENEURS AND CEO’S JUST AT THE END OF A SONG.

All is well

 

4). MOST OF HIS PROTAGONISTS ARE COMMON MEN/ YOUTH WHO ARE POVERTY STRICKEN.

5). HE DOESN’T PORTRAY HAPPY FAMILIES PAR TO REALITY, MOST OF HIS STORIES TALK ABOUT SCREWED UP FAMILIES AND FAMILY VALUES.

6). ALL HIS TALES HAVE THE MOST COMMON VILLAIN, SCREWED UP SOCIETY AND SYSTEM!!

7). HIS STORIES ARE ALL MADE OF SUBSTANCE.

MOREOVER IT MIGHT INSPIRE YOU TO DO SOMETHING TO MAKE THE SOCIETY A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE IN, LIKE TWO STATES INSTIGATES YOU TO BRING PEOPLE FROM VARIOUS CULTURAL BACKGROUNDS TOGETHER WHILE THREE IDIOTS TALKS ABOUT ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO FOLLOW THEIR PASSION IN LIFE AND REVOLUTION 2020 IS ALL ABOUT MAKING INDIA A CORRUPTION FREE COUNTRY AND AM SURE PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO THE SAME CAN INCULCATE IN US TO DO SOMETHING FOR THE SOCIETY TOO.

8). MOST OF HIS STORIES TALK OF CHARACTERS WHO SCREW UP IN LIFE AND ACHIEVE IT BIG LATER. SO IT CAN BOOST UP YOUR CONFIDENCE TOO.

9). UNCANNILY MOST OF HIS COUPLES HAVE PRE-MARITAL SEX, NO AM NOT SAYING IT’S A TRENDSETTER FOR YOUTH ( WINK WINK) BUT HE DOESN’T MAKE THEM A ONE NIGHT STAND TOO.

IT’S MORE OF SOMETHING THAT SPURS INTIMACY AND TAKES THE COUPLE TO THE NEXT STAGE, LIKE IN 2STATES KRISH PROPOSES ANANYA AFTER HE REALIZES HE HAS LIVED WITH HER FOR 2YEARS. THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE OF HOW GENTLEMANLY HIS CHARACTERS ARE PORTRAYED AND IT’S TIME MANY MEN TAKE A CUE FROM THE SAME!!

10). HE DOESN’T SPIN TALES OUT OF NOTHING; HIS BOOKS ARE ALL ABOUT REALITY CHECK.

PERSONALLY I THINK THAT’S WHAT MAKES HIM A HIT AMONG YOUTH HE WRITES AND TALKS ABOUT WHAT WE FACE GENUINELY SO WE GET TO RELATE TO THE CHARACTERS AMICABLY.

3 idiots

 

11). IN THE AGE OF MULTIPLE RELATIONSHIPS, ALMOST ALL HIS CHARACTERS HAVE AN EX 😛 ( OR MORE) .

IT’S TIME TO TAKE THE CUE FROM THERE AND LEARN TO MOVE WITH YOUR LIFE; FOR LIFE’S ALL ABOUT LEARNING TO DANCE IN THE RAIN RATHER THAN WAITING FOR THE STORM TO PASS.

Arjun Kapoor

 

12). THE HEROINES OF HIS NOVELS ARE ALL HIGHBROWS. THEY ARE INDEPENDENT, OPEN-MINDED AND STAND FORTH AS A CLICHE FOR THE MODERN SOCIETY.

PERSONALLY I LIKED IT HOW ANANYA TALKED AGAINST DOWRY IN ‘TWO STATES’, THE WAY AARTHI DEPOSITS A HIGH BROW SLAP ON GOPAL WHEN SHE REALIZES HE CHEATED ON HER IN ‘R2020’ AND THE OUTSTANDING SCENE WHEN PRIYANKA THRASHES VROOM IN ‘ONE NIGHT AT THE CALL CENTRE’ FOR CALLING ESHA A HOOKER.

13). THE LOVE AND HATE RELATIONSHIPS IN HIS BOOKS ARE BETTER THAN IN MOST OF THE BOLLYWOOD MOVIES.

BE IT THE WAY ANANYA BREAKS UP WITH KRISH AFTER THE OPERATION GOA OR THE WAY SHE MAKES UP WITH HIM OVER PHONE COOCHIE COOCHIN AS BABY BABY ALL THE WAY, HIS LOVE TALES ARE AMAZING; MAKES YOU BELIEVE TRUE LOVE DOES EXIST EVEN THOUGH IT DOESN’T APPEAR TO DO SO.

Kareena Kapoor

 

14). HE PROMOTES SPIRITUALITY WITHOUT MAKING US REALIZE IT.

TAKE THE CUE FROM ONE NIGHT AT THE CALL CENTER’S CLIMAX, THE WOMAN IN THE TRAIN TURNS OUT TO BE GOD.

2 states

 

15). ‘NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE’ IS CHETAN’S REALM. HE ENDS ALL OF HIS STORIES ON A POSITIVE NOTE.

THOUGH ANANYA STATES ‘TRAGEDY IS THE NEW COOL’, MOST OF THE AUDIENCE PREFER HAPPY STORIES OVER OTHERS SO THAT’S HIS ADVANTAGE.

3 idiots

 

16). He Has An Exceptional SARCASTIC DRY HUMOR.

For Eg: IN 2STATES, YOU HINDU READING GRUMPY LOSER :D, I SAID HELLO TO BEANS AND CABBAGE, WATCHING A PUNJABI SPEAK TAMIL IS LIKE WATCHING ALPHA TV MERGE WITH SUN TV ETC. YOU NAILED IT HE IS UNIQUE AS WELL AS AWESOME!! 😀
