Storyline

An advertising executive, Senthil (Cheran) takes a bunch of wedding invitation cards and travels through places from his past, looking up old friends and lovers. The story, told in flashbacks, takes pieces from the protagonist's his boyhood and youth, and jumps back to the present in each situation. An interesting experiment in Indian cinema, Autograph was surprisingly successful at the box office for an offbeat film. Written by Joyojeet Pal

quite touching
23 October 2004 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I don't watch much Tamil cinema (mostly because I'm not familiar with it), but when I was last in India I heard many people talking about this film. They were saying it was moving and touching, something which i generally equated to overwrought melodrama.

Almost eight months later, I came across the DVD for "Autograph" by accident, and decided to give it a try. I was shocked.

This was an excellent picture, done with care and a lot of heart. Sure there are a few (and only a rare few) overly melodramatic moments, but overall it really touched me. Anyone (especially men) who have gone through the turmoils of relationships broken or incomplete will feel a joyfully sorrow connection to this film. I was moved by its honesty and quite frank look at relationships, and it brought a smile to my face when the film reveled in the exuberance and innocence of childhood crushes and young infatuation.

I rarely recommend modern commercial Indian cinema (because most of it is unfortunately subpar), but this is a lovely little film, definitely an engaging romantic drama. Kudos to the director/ writer Cheran for doing excellent work with visuals and performances, and I hope he continues to make such honest films in the future. 8/10
