Books Adapted for Movies
Chetan Bhagat’s writing is the first choice to read for every young person in the country and today is seen as “India’s Youth Icon”. Bhagat’s 3 books have been adapted for movies in India so far. His novel “Five Point Someone” has inspired the best movie in India “3 Idiots”. Also movie “Hello” is based on “One night @ Call Center” and “Kai Po Che” movie is based on the novel “Three Mistakes of My Life”.
Bhagat started with fictional work namely “Five Point Someone” (his first book) which got huge success back in 2004. In 2012 he released his first Non-Fictional book “What Young India Wants”, focusing on the needs, mindsets, passion and methods of younger generations and the problems they are facing in achieving it. Though all the books by Bhagat have earned very well and remained best sellers for long times, the best book (personal recommendation) by Bhagat is “2 states” which is inspired by his own life story and depicts the dilemma and mindsets of Indian society in marriage of Boy and Girl, and checking each other
family and backgrounds in a humorous way. His latest work in Fiction is “Revolution 2020”.
