Book Review : Complete / Convenient by Haimanti Datta ray The fact that the author’s name rhymes with Chetan Bhagat, is not a coincidence. Ketan Bhagat, is in-fact the younger brother of an author who has redefined our reading habits and has proved that best-selling books can also be made into box-office film hits, in an Indian context. As Ketan Bhagat writes, in his acknowledgements to his debut novel, Complete/ Convenient, (about his elder brother) “If he wouldn’t have been a writer, I wouldn’t have dared writing a book”. more…

Book Review : Complete/ Convenient | Ketan Bhagat Reading a 400 page book is sometimes boring and sometimes really interesting. This book caught an interesting pace right from the beginning. Reading about Indian Marriages is always a pleasure. Reading about After-marriage situations is even better.

Complete Convenient: Book Review It’s long time I saw new release section of Flipkart, last time when I had a look – Book with the name Complete Convenient took my attention not because of its (book) name or content but because of surname “Bhagat”. Name of the author is bhagat… Ketan Bhagat. I am sure you all will be thinking of India’s bestseller author Chetan Bhagat. To relax your nerves would like to tell that “yes” they are brothers.

#BookReview Complete/Convenient – by Ketan Bhagat To be honest knowing that Ketan Bhagat was the brother of Chetan Bhagat killed my anticipation for the book. Well I agree Chetan Bhagat has brought Indian youth back to reading but being a reader myself I am less than impressed with his writing. So one can imagine my surprise when I found myself actually enjoying Complete/Convenient. He is all that Chetan Bhagat is not in a positive way, and that is saying a lot.

Complete/Convenient explores expatriate life for India’s diaspora The latest official Indian figures estimate the Indian diaspora at 22 million people. Nonresident Indians (NRIs) comprise about 10 million, and, of those, about 213,000 live in Australia. Britain has its Bronte sisters; now, India has its Bhagat brothers. With his debut novel, Complete/Convenient, Ketan Bhagat proves that great writing is not the exclusive provenance of big brother Chetan, but is now the family business.

Review of Complete/ Convenient by Ketan Bhagat by Rohit Arya Finally we get a book about the NRI experience that is not rarefied in literary unapproachability or debased to the aunty fantasies that constitute the oeuvre of Karan Johar. The debut novel by Ketan Bhagat, may not be considered great, but it is definitely a pioneering effort and more importantly he employs prose in a sturdy, workmanlike manner. That is more difficult than most people realize and is always praiseworthy. Urban India is finally reaching towards adult psychological maturity and this book is a milestone in that long overdue process.
