As the title suggests it’s a movie based on bike ride. Obviously it appeals for teens and let us see how far the movie reached expectations.
Mahesh (Tanish) is the responsible son of a middle class retired father (Kasi Vishwanath). He joins in Kapil Chit Funds as collection agent to add something to his father’s pension. As his employer (Brahmanandam) asks him to possess a bike to work in his company, his mother (Thulasi) gifts him one on loan.
On the other hand Arjun (Nani) is the son of an employee (Ahuthi Prasad) who believes more in savings than fulfilling the bike-desire of his son. Arjun is so passionate about bike that he finds no meaning in life without that. He studies in collage and dreams about possessing a bike every day.
Once, Mahesh loses his bike and finds that with Arjun. The tug starts from then. Has Arjun stolen Mahesh’s bike? Finally how that bike changes the lives of these two youngsters? That forms rest of the story.
Rani (Swetha) is the lady beside Mahesh and Pooja (Aksha) is the girl for Arjun.
Nani is at his best. He is setting a trade mark for himself with unique voice and modulation of dialogues. But at times, he is brining in monotony of expression carrying his Asta Chemma flavor. He should be conscious at that point. He proves to be a good suit for mass oriented roles.
Tanish is still tender in looks. He needs to add roughness to fit into the action oriented bill. But he is perfect fit for the role he portrayed in this film. He has to work on dialogue modulation.
Aksha is for glamour while Shwetha is with performance plus glamour. Like ‘e…p..u..d..u’, ‘e….k..a..d..a’ modulation in KBL, here she was give the mannerism ‘Ori Nayano..’. But that proved superfluous in some scenes.
Kasi Vishwanth has slimmed down and now looking better than that of in Nachavule. Ahuthi Prasad has little to portray. Comedy would have worked on him to add value for his presence. Others are ok.
Brahmanandam-Praveen combination as bava-bavamaridi brought many laughs in theaters. Praveen seems to be promising artiste for subtle humor and comedy for many film makers these days.
Coming to technical aspects, Hema Chandra’s music is good and RR is also done well. Dialogues and direction is also up to the requirement.
As said above, it’s a concept that appeals to the age group of 13-19. The sentiment that surrounds a bike may not appeal for matured audiences. It’s a clear cut action-sentiment drama knitted around a two-wheeler.
First half of the movie is with good pace while second half pervaded with action episodes and chasing sequences. The climax is a bit lengthy but there is little scope to make it short.
‘Dhanchave menaththa koothura…’ remix on Nani and Aksha is canned in a perfect masala way.
Navadeep’s appearance in guest role in climax is a bit interesting. On a whole, the movie has followed the formula of a youthful masala entertainer.
