If '3 Mistakes..' were a film

The Review of 'The 3 Mistakes of my life' by Chetan Bhagat, my way!!

With both of his novels being made into films, the chances are high that proceedings of buying the reproduction rights of this third book are in pace.

If this movie would be made into a film, the film would have enough masala - but it would end up being a confused film.

Emraan Hashmi would want to play the title role for like all other Chetan Bhagat novels, this one has depictions of secret physical intimacy and ya, adultery.

Of late, every movie has to be screened to a delegation that needs to approve that the film does not hurt the sentiments of their community. With all these smaller meaner censor boards in place, the film (the film based on this book) would really have to go through a lot of checks - the film does touch a lot of sensitive issues.

The climax of this film, however, will indeed be liked by all. Because it is as unbelievable, exaggerated and weird as many of our Hindi films! I mean, when I finished the book, I had a 'What?' on my face.

So anyways, if '3 mistakes...' is made into a film, that would be the producer's first mistake.

Chetan's third book fails to live up to the expectations. He follows the same path again - and maybe sprinkles some current events (The earthquake, the riots) that have taken place in Gujarat in the last couple of years. The book and its characters fail to strike a chord.
