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 qith their own inner conflicts as well as tje 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 unbashed, unapologetic videos, venting out their angst against people, politics,bosses,lovers, taboos, or just 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 witty, gritty, fast-paced journey of three friends, it's also an intolerant story for a tolerant country!


Today's youth, many of them, dream of having an own start-up and making it big. This novel, Confused Bastards, is sure to motivate and inspire all those young minds.

The story is a modern day tale of three friends who dream of having a successful business. The three characters- Aakash, Jai and Vivek are poles apart, having different opinion and viewpoints. It is this difference that brings them together and makes them the best of buddies. Their friendship seems to be strong one. Their conversations are simply amazing. The story has been narrated in third person narrative in simple English. The events have been narrated in at a steady pace. There isn't any kind of hurry. This is the reason why you don't get bored with the novel. The story surprises you at many instances.

This novel teaches you a few lessons.

  • If you want your life to change, you must be ready to take the risk.
  • By letting go people and things you aren't liberating others but liberating self from unnecessary worries and stress.
  • Whatever you do, believe that you are doing the right thing and give your best to it.
  • Never give up!


  • The start-up idea.
  • The three boy's we-wont- give-up attitude.


  • The font size could have been increased a bit. It would have enhanced the reading experience.
  • The use of Hindi language in some places was a major turn-off.

I rate:

Cover: 3/5

Story: 3.5/5

My overall rating for 'Confused Bastards' is 3.5/5 stars.
