Story


Autograph is a 2010 Indian Bengali costume drama, drama film released on Oct 14, 2010. The film is directed by Srijit Mukherji, produced by Srikant Mohta.

Calcutta, 1966.
An iconic Director collaborated with the greatest Superstar of Bengal. And a classic was born.

43 years later, the film changed three lives forever.

Arun Chatterjee, the reigning matinee idol of the Bengal Film Industry.

Shubhobroto Mitra, an aspiring director who wants to remake Satyajit Ray's Nayak with Arun as the lead.

Srinandita Sen, an idealistic theatre actress and Shubho's live-in partner who gets cast as the journalist in the film.

Autograph charts the journeys of these three lives, as they bond and separate through time and space, in two interwining narratives.

That is, till their final tryst with destiny.

Autograph is about stories. Reel and real.

Autograph is about dreams. Converging and diverging.

Autograph is about ambition. That creates and destroys.

Arun Chatterjee, the superstar of Bengali films has a few scripts in hands including that of a new film maker Subhobrata Mitra who has not directed any films and has only made a documentary before this. He approaches Arun to produce the film and can not make the film unless he produces it as Arun is the only superstar according to him and Satyajit Roy is his idol, hence the film is called ‘Aajker Nayak’ which is just on the lines of Uttam Kumar’s ‘Nayak’.Subho convinces his live-in-girlfriend Srinandita (a small time theatre actress) to act as the female lead and Arun also gives his consent. The shooting begins and as it progresses we see the change in Subho as well as the relationship between three people-Subho, Sree and Arun.The end is somewhat very different from what one had hoped.


The film starts with a proposal of remaking Satyajit Ray's famous Nayak by a debutant director and storywriter Shuvobrata (Indraneil Sengupta) to famous Bengali actor Arun Chatterjee (Prasenjit). Arun approves Shuvobrata's proposal and agrees to finance the project. Shuvobrata requests his live-in girlfriend Srinandita or Shrin (Nandana Sen) to act opposite Arun. In the meantime, Arun and Shrin become close friends and Arun tells her about various incident from his past in an emotionally triggered condition. The exchange is videotaped accidentally and Shuvobrata on discovering it leaks it to the press, without Srinandita's consent, as a publicity stunt for the film. Srinandita leaves Shuvobrata on learning of this indiscretion. Arun, furious about the leak, bars the film from being released. Arun later learns that Shrin had no role in the leak and apologizes to her. The movie ends with Shrin leaving a note and a phone number for Arun at a roadside dhaba where they had met earlier.
