Why wait for Chetan Bhagat to release another book?

Our book is going to be on:

The hero and key loser of this story is:

His co-loser and culturally diverse friends, please

The extremely intelligent, beautiful, feminist heroine with whom our hero screws around with (multiple times):

So what do our boys want in life?

Which they intend to achieve by:



And where is all this happening?

Pick any 3 social stereotypes/prejudices that you may want our loser-hero to confront (isn’t this fun?)





Now, about the man himself! What do YOU think of Chetan Bhagat?


The newspaper that will review this awesome book will be:






143 Comments on The Chetan Bhagat Plot Generator

  1. I don't know this Chetan Bhagat fellow, but the post was funny. The Dan Brown one was also good, but Abhithakuchalambal can kick Susan's ass any day, as we all know.

  2. When Sheetal enters their lives, things change like never before.
    Life in Bathinda is tough indeed, because every pretty girl has equally scary brothers.
    And they would love to embrace Chetan the Chip into the old block…

    Brilliant.

  3. Neat work as usual … just a couple of pointers …

    The title of the book should have mention of a number …(Five, One, Three and Two have been taken already though)

    The protagonists in his novels are usually named after many of Krishna's, so the hero's name selector in this plot generator is slightly flawed ….

    Cheers

  4. lolz so much like chetan bhagat

    [i]As Chetan Bhagat would say it …
    Meet Ankit, Om & Steve. All they wanted was to get blocked by Chetan Bhagat on twitter, and killing polar bears seemed to be the perfect plan. But life is never that easy in Bathinda, and when the extremely beautiful Abithakuchalambal enters their lives, things change like never before. Follow Ankit as he fights against Chennai's autodrivers, Punjabi aunties and even corruption to realize his dreams. Is one dream one too many? Will they make it?

  5. haha LOL kickass!!hope mr cb reads this post,the poor guy wil think twice before he picks up the blighted pen again:)rotten eggs,oops,chutney splattered al over the bloke's face;)

  6. You know, I read '2 States' while I was in India and I was thinking the exact same thing. Hilariously well done post, this!

    "Meet Shiv, Swami & Mohammad. All they wanted was to become successful, and pirating novels seemed to be the perfect plan. But life is never that easy in Tirunelveli, and when the extremely beautiful Abithakuchalambal enters their lives, things change like never before. Follow Shiv as he fights against religion, inter-community relationships and even Punjabi aunties to realize his dreams. Is one dream one too many? Will they make it?"

  7. @everyone – thanks!

    @atul
    um, abithakuchalambal is a VERY valid tamil iyer name ๐Ÿ™‚

    @I Witness
    Haha, I didn't put *that* much effort into reading his books. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    @porkodi & santa
    It wouldn't be the first time. For me atleast ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Meet Nirag, Swami & Mohammad. All they wanted was to get blocked by Chetan Bhagat on twitter, and killing polar bears seemed to be the perfect plan. But life is never that easy in Bathinda, and when the extremely beautiful Monjulika enters their lives, things change like never before. Follow Nirag as he fights against Punjabi aunties, Chennai's autodrivers and even communalism to realize his dreams. Is one dream one too many? Will they make it?

  9. Chetan Bhagat didn't quit his job to become a full time writer ….. his boss kicked him out after reading his books ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. brilliant! i loved the option of abhithakuchalambal, but seeing as my tale took place in bathinda, i had to opt for the rather more plausible pooja. btw, why are even the auotrickshaw-karaars in bathinda from chennai? he he. haven't played mad libs in ages, but have you considered compiling several of similar sets into a book? it would be great.

  11. LOL at Abithakuchalambal! My uncle used to tease me saying that he'd suggested that name for me when I was born – he still calls me Abitha once in a while ๐Ÿ˜€

  12. Nice fresh conceptโ€ฆ. Liked it ๐Ÿ™‚

    But about the plots of bhagatโ€™s book, they can look similar as the main theme of his stories are the common problems in Indian society & system. It is the way he narrate things makes the story interesting.
    I like his writing, He writes for masses I feel.

  13. Hilarious! Though, barring his questionable grammar and cliched plots, I have to say I have enjoyed Bhagat's books. If anything, because he faces no competition in his genre (hint: start writing, coconut chutney!)

  14. Other options in the drop down ought to include 'software engineers sitting on bench and acquiring insane skills at swatting flies' and papers could've had names like 'dubakoor times' and 'the loafing hindu' ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. This guy's(Chetan Bhagat) first book was different and a good read. But his subsequent books have become predictable. And I always get the feeling that he writes a filmy script so that filmmakers make a movie out of his book.

  16. You got me at Abithakuchalambal girl! ๐Ÿ˜€ LOL big time! You do know you have an alternate career option hounding you, don't you? ๐Ÿ˜€ Awesome post!

  17. i think you should do a Raju Hirani movie template generator as well.. jadhu ki jappi/all is well/ – old readers digest jokes – heroine caught between father and lover .. etc etc ..

    this blog was fun .. keep it going

  18. What do guys want in life? think you missed some important options…Did you get Abitha kuchalambal from PSBB's Sanskrit stints? This is the next best thing after MIT's random paper generator:D

  19. Can you please revert back to the old layout of the web page. This all green design sucks……Though it is your blog, but it is us who read and Since I have been following your writing for a few years now, I feel that the old one was nicer.

    Balaji

  20. now that u have figured out how to plot ur novel why dont u start writing one, ur posts are already such a huge hit.. i am sure ur books will be flying off the shelves even before releasing ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. Hi Lavanya,
    Just stumbled onto your blog a few days . Yours is one of the hilarious blogs i have ever read . You would give the comedians in Kollywood a serious run for their money . Man , your blog must come with a statutory warning like "Not to be read during office hours " or "induces uncontrollable laughing like an idiot " or "effects similar to exposure to laughing gas."

  22. its like someone very jealous about CB cant satnd his success and the comments from others are also like that.

  23. Excellent post, as usual.

    But you could have chosen something simpler, like an Ilaya thalapathy Vijay Movie Template Generator. That way, you would need just one drop down box – Occupation.

  24. what would chethan bhagat say on reading this post.
    if he was like Gounds in suriyan
    "Arasiyalla idhellam sadharnam appa"

    or like Vaigai puyal

    "Enna vechu kamadi kimadi pannaliye"

  25. not to start throwing the book on u. yaen ippidi inspired work ellam panra. ur original humor is much much better than this 'inspired work'. i enjoyed your wit and humor in the original form. next is what? TR thangachi sentimentizeraa?

    btw, CA examla blog skin change panrathukku mark kudupaangalaa? nallaa iruntha skinna vitutu ithenna pudina chutney style? coconut chutney was better, clean and suits the mood…

  26. @anon & phoenix
    dear sirs,
    Towards the end of the post, you should see a grey button that says "hit me". Do you see it?
    Good.
    Right below that grey button, there is a sentence. Do you see it? Awesome! Have a cookie. Can you read it? Try, no? I'm sure you can. It says, "Based on the Dan Brown plot generator". Nice no? That was where I got the idea from. And that sentence right there, is the credit.
    Do you understand? Or would you like me to use smaller words?

  27. Hi Lavanya,
    Nice post! Even nicer is the reply to your critics. Thats what made me delurk….I have been reading and enjoying your blog for a while now.
    I get that you are a PSBB alumni (sorry if I am wrong, thought I might have read that somewhere in your blog. Just wanted to say me too! way back though…almosta decade.
    keep up the laughs!

  28. hahahahaha!!
    People are so innovative, and talented.
    btw, TOI is the newspaper that's always ass-licking Chetan Bhagat.
    It should've been among the choices.
    nevertheless, this is hilarious!

    LOllllllll!!!
    ROFL!!! too gooood

  30. We need people like you to make people understand. Our youth is misled by cheap writing by Chetan Bhagat. We also need to understand the difference between the types of Hippocrates that exist, as one species is of CB.

    Keep the spirit alive.

  31. I seriously Appreciated and enjoyed your blog up and until i saw this post.

    Wonder why you die hard "100 Rupee book" critics of Chetan Bhagat never reply to the fact that if he was crap or maybe even worse than that, you could write still better crap and make much more millions than him? It shouldnt be difficult to write crap, right , especially for a person who has 500 fans following her? ๐Ÿ™‚

    And for all those people out there, who think his story is plain predictable –
    What about thalaivar Rajinikanth? Its the same story line, right? right from annamalai, padayappa to sivaji – poor man becoming rich man? Do you stop watching his movies because they are predictable? { Goes to all tamil folks out here. } Arent there critics who say that he is a balding 60 year old man and ought to do grandpa roles? But would you or I buy that logic? I do understand that many of you would say that he has a style and charisma that none can match. Fine! Acceptable! But what about Chetan Bhagat? Plain simple, Use lavanya's multi generator and each one of you can become a millionaire, right?

    Chetan Bhagat has thousands of critics but millions of fans. Dont forget that his book was a trend setter. Only after his "5 point someone", people even actually started writing and reading his genre of books. His book opened a market in India ( much before blogging entered the scenario) and gave talented writers an opportunity to write their books, get famous and make money. It is fine to criticize him, but give him his due, when he is worth it.

    Critics like you are fit only to criticize. As you said, your plain jealous. Rather than having a burning stomach, you should write a book yourself, get it printed ( and for all those fans of yours who said you have alternate career in your hands – first see if you can get it printed ) , earn a fraction of what he does and get a fan base fractionally his, and then you can start bashing him. I too would join with you that day.

    If you cannot, just shut up, and stick to your original posts in the blog. Your much better doing that. This is not humour, cheap criticism and jealousy.

  32. @anon
    Whoa! I am not a critic. Like you rightly pointed out, I am not eligible to criticize him. Chetan Bhagat, in my opinion, is one of the greatest things that has happened to the Indian public where the reading habit was concerned. He's a really really really smart guy who knows exactly who to target.

    This post was in jest. I am sorry if it didn't make you laugh.

  33. @chutney
    I don't see any reason why you should apologize. I criticize tendulkar doesn't mean I be better than him. period. To criticize a particular Rahman song I don't have to be a better musician. There are tonnes of food critics, wine tasters who are shit at cooking / brewing. That anon fart is most probably a pissed off IITian who is brainwashed by his seniors to protect the holy IIT brand at whatever cost.

  34. @anon
    didn't apologize for what i wrote. i only apologized cause i didnt make him laugh, which is what i try to do in this blog.
    thanks, though – and be nice. ๐Ÿ™‚
