A scene from 'Five Point Someone.  

'Five Point Someone' is a story about the wonder years of college — of friendship, love and grades!

Evam (Chennai)

Directed by: Sunil Vishnu K

Adapted from Chetan Bhagat?s Five Point Someone

Synopsis:

Chetan Bhagat's 'Five Point Someone' is a story about three friends and four years in IIT. Three hostel mates — Alok, Hari and Ryan get off to a bad start in IIT— they screw up the frst class quiz. While they try to make amends, things only get worse. It takes them a while to realise: If you try and screw with the IIT system, it comes back to double screw you. Before they know it, they are at the lowest echelons of IIT society. They have a five-point-something GPA out of ten, ranking near the end of their class. This GPA is a stain that will remain with them, and come in the way of anything else that matters — their friendship, their future, their love life. While the world expects IITians to conquer the world, these guys are struggling to survive.

Will they make it? Do under performers have a right to live? Can they show that they are not just a five-point-something but a five-point-someone?

Director's Quote:

"'Five Point Someone' is a story about the wonder years of college, of friendship, love and grades! We have tried to keep the soul of Chetan's book intact. The play is meant for all audiences — young and old."
