While there has been no dearth to films set on an engineering campus of late, ‘B.Tech’ thankfully doesn’t stick to the common campus caper norms. After an easy, non-eventful former half, the film pulls out a present-day social issue out of its backpack and does a pretty okay job at brandishing it without much of a fuss.
The intrigue that shrouds the title ‘Ira’ barely makes its ways into the film. It is less about victims or even victimization and more a customary plot on the hunters and the hunted; a generic fare that simply isn’t rousing enough to have your hair standing on its ends.
It’s a nothing plot that evolves into nothing that messes up ‘Goodalochana’. Strange and sad, since all that colour, energy and flair that it had in store, looks regrettably frittered away in this stratagem sans a strong spine.
