Chetan Bhagat Combo Of 4 Books

Chetan Bhagat Combo Of 4 Books is a collection of four novels by Chetan Bhagat, each one of them a bestseller.

Summary Of The Books
Chetan Bhagat Combo Of 4 Books is a box set that includes four titles by Chetan Bhagat. The books are in random order.

One Night At The Call Center (2005) is the story of six people who work at a call center called Connexions in Gurgaon, Haryana. One night, the protagonists begin to face an onslaught of dramatic, unpleasant things. The story gets a twist when the characters receive a phone call, shockingly, from God. What follows forms the crux of the story. This novel was adapted for the film format.

Five Point Someone (2004) is about three best friends and their struggle to survive the life in an IIT (Indian Institute of Technology). Hari, Alok, and Ryan are three friends who have a less-than-perfect start at the IIT - thanks to their bad performance in the class quiz, their first ever in the IIT. Their efforts to set things right backfire. They end up with a GPA that is just five point something out of the upper limit of ten. Their low GPA is sure to be a thorn in their side for years to come, leaving their friendship and future in danger. Whether they manage to survive this negative succession of events remains the question.

In The 3 Mistakes Of My Life (2008), three friends, Govind, Ishaan and Omi start a business venture focusing on cricket. However, each one of them has a different motive. Govind is desirous of making lots of money through their venture. Ishaan wishes to nurture and promote the talent of a gifted batsman named Ali. Omi is more interested in savoring the company of his closest friends than doing business. The story is set in Ahmedabad, between 2000 and 2005. It is narrated by Govind, the protagonist, and revolves around three of his mistakes. The book is based on real-life events.

2 States (2009) is based on the author’s own love story with his wife. It tells about a couple, Krish and Ananya, each hailing from a different state of India. They are completely in love with each other, and cannot wait to tie the knot. But, convincing both sets of parents to approve of and bless their union is their toughest challenge yet. The outcome can go either way. It remains to be seen whether a shot at rebellion or a dose of persuasion works.
