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

Pleasantly surprised
19 July 2004 | by (US) – See all my reviews

I'm not a huge fan of Indian movies in general, but I let myself be talked into watching this one, expecting nothing more than an afternoon of fun with friends making fun of some cheesy dialogue. About 10 minutes into it, I was completely captivated by the touchingly sweet portrayal of a high school boy's first love. The movie begins with the viewer being told that a man who's about to be married shortly, is on his way to invite people to his wedding. So from the moment you meet his first love, you're drawn deep into the story, wanting to know more about what happened to each person he meets and most importantly who the woman is that he finally marries.

The rest of the movie is a series of vignettes on the years of his life leading up to the present. Every human emotion is treated so honestly with no melodrama (not to mention acted out superbly on screen), that you feel like you're making that journey with him. Rejoicing in his happiness and hurting with him in his sorrows.

There are very few movies (Indian or otherwise) that portray the ups and downs of growing up quite as well. This is definitely one of those.
