What happens when three entrepreneurs initiate a start-up which shocks the nation?
Aakash, Jai and Vivek are mostly usual in their ways, except for some. Struggling with their own inner conflicts as well as the cruel world outside, they decide to show the world their true potential. To make it big. But how? They become the voice of the nation by starting up an online platform where people can upload unabashed, unapologetic videos, venting out their angst against people, politics, bosses, lovers, taboos, or just about anything. Even the founders themselves.
The platform spreads like wild fire. But when has fire doused without burning a few! Confused Bastards is not just a witty, gritty, fast-paced journey of three friends, it’s also an intolerant story for a tolerant country!

MY REVIEW :
When I read the blurb of the book, I knew that this book has something different in it. The story of the book would be something different.It is rightly said,”Never judge a book by its cover the book by its cover.”The book was good but could have been more better. The prologue of the book was nice. I literally laughed a lot when Aakash shooted second time in the prologue session. I could visualise same thing in front of me.
The book basically starts with journey of three boys, Aakash, Jai and Vivek. Where Vivek believed in God and worship him everyday early morning, the other two were lazy ones. The second one Jai was working in a company where he had to do much work. The third Aakash was son of IPS officer but he left his home after graduation. The stroy moves forward to Jai meeting Sneha and Aakash meeting Mr. Sanjay. Aakash surely had a great business plan but investment was a big issue. Vivek divorce with his wife Aarti had disturbed him a lot. Last but not the least they started with their venture with idea of Jai. There were few lines which made me laugh a lot. I loved one of the chapters’ title,” Hum Saare Bekkar, Karne Chale Vyapaar.” I even loved this line,” You grew up in Bharat but are now living in India. ” Now when the trio were all set to launch their http://www.ihafa.in. They got their first client as Ramakant Trivedi. Sneha and Jai meetings were the part I loved a lot. The trio shooted many videos and uploaded on their website. Neha story brought tears to my eyes but then there was a twist in the story. Her story resulted into their closure of business landing them to jail. The trio meets a man Sattu who make them confess that they are Confused Bastards. Overall, the book was quite interesting. I could not stop myself from reading it in one go. The author surely has skills of how to balance the whole story in a go. “Confused Bastards” is one of those books which one can read more than once and even then they will enjoy it equally.
RATING : 5/5
