Ride story at a glance
Ride is the story of two young guys Mahesh and Arjun. Mahesh (Tanish) is the son of a just retired middle class government officer. He is a responsible guy and shares the responsibility of running the family. He works as a collection agent in a chit fund company and buys a bike with his mother’s savings as the job requires him to own one. And on the other side, Arjun (Nani) is a carefree youngster who is passionate about bikes. His dream is to own a bike. But his scrooge father never buys him one. Mahesh’s bike is stolen one day and reached Arjun. Did he stole it? And rest of the story is all about how the conflict is resolved?
Director Ramesh Varma seemed to have inspired from Italian black & white classic Ladri di biciclette (Bicycle Thieves). However, he was successful in adapting it to our nativity. The movie was a decent hit.
Nani and Tanish played the lead roles in the movie. Nani became a star later. Tanish was confined only to small films.
Shwetha Basu Prasad who shot to fame with Kotha Bangaru Lokam made her debut opposite Tanish in the movie. Aksha who made a silent debut with Yuvatha paired up with Nani.
Nandamuri Balakrishna’s chartbuster song “Danchave Menatha kuthura…” from Mangamma gari manavadu was remixed in the movie.
The director of this movie, Ramesh Varma is a film poster designer before he forayed in to movies with Oka Oorilo.
