The talent of creating scripts and earning recognition for it was relegated to the background, as the urge to be in front of the camera overtook. Ramesh Aravind known in his college days as a quick thinker, found his way back to the turf of words with the story of Hoomale. A story of love with terrorism as a backdrop absorbed the audience and became a huge success. Ramesh not only wrote the script and the screenplay, but anchored the film as the lead actor as well. The subtleties of life was well depicted in the script, and won the heart of the audiences.
The story was filmed by Nagathihalli Chandrashekar, and won many the national award that year. Amruthadhare was the next offering of Ramesh to the Kannada audiences. Based on the emotion of true love; the irony of eternal bonding in the face of impending death, this story tugged at the hearts of the audiences. Amruthadhare was co-scripted by Ramesh and the combination of Ramesh and Nagathihalli Chandrashekar proved to be a winner yet again.
Encouraged by the response received, Ramesh turned to writing once again. This time he experimented with a theme that was squarely opposite to his earlier attempts. Accident, a suspense thriller was based on a true story. It was Ramesh Aravind’s third directorial venture, and although not a commercial hit, the movie received rave reviews by the critics.
