     A Contemporary Indian Love Marriage 2 December, 2013 On Junglee.com
    2 States by Chetan Bhagat is a fun and easy ready. The trials and tribulations of a contemporary India love marriage are well-described by the author. Inter-caste or inter-religious marriages are slowly on the rise, but only those brave few who have attempted to bring two different cultures together will know the difficulty involved. In this book, the groom is a typical Punjabi munda while the bride is a Tamil Iyer girl. The North Indian vs. South Indian family system, traditions, customs vary significantly. But ultimately love has the upper hand. What makes this novel even more interesting is that the story is inspired by the author’s own life!

  3.  A must read... 6 January, 2015 On Junglee.com

    Great plot..and very well written.
    It’s a simple story of a Punjabi IIM guy and a Tamilian girl while they complete their Post Graduation from IIM Ahmedabad.

    Read it if you haven't seen the movie.

  4.  Chetan Bhagat at his wittiest 16 June, 2014 On Junglee.com
    CB in this book, has resorted to what he does best, writing about romance. He does have a knack to write about the psychological stuff from the minds of a basic college student. This is evident in the words he uses, the cliches he quotes and the dialogues between the couple in the novel. The story basically involves the hardships faced by a couple in love due to one primary reason- they are from different cultural walks of life. They face a tough task of convincing their parents, while discovering their relationship's strength in the process of doing so. What this novel scores the highest is certainly the charm of each culture that is described in a very convincing way. 3.25/5

  7.  4 lines of synopsis defines the whole story 8 June, 2014 On Junglee.com
    Starts off as a normal love story with a guy and gal falling for each other. Its then the novel shows its true color. It shows what all couple should be ready to sacrifice to be with one another. how to fight the odds without giving it.

    Pro :

    Complete paisa vasool. At 91 bucks it is a good steal.

    Cons:
    Dragged at places

  9.  The book is a waste of time, watch movie instead
    Hi,
    I remember buying the first copy from store as an avid reader of chetan bhagat's.
    The book utilizes the set stereotypes of IIMs and is in part enjoyable.
