My daughter is 18 months of age, she understands everything but still she talks only in one words or may 2 at a time, but my friend’s son who is of her age talks very well. Is my daughter autistic?

As a parent I understand your concern but please get a hold of your thoughts, and give your daughter sometime. Autism is difficult to be diagnosed till the age of 24 months yes there can be early symptoms, but delayed talking is not a definite sign, there have to be other symptoms as well to draw any conclusion. So long as she can express herself non-verbally also, I don’t see any reason to get concerned. Each child is different so please don’t compare. If you wish to seek professional help do so, but personally I would suggest that you wait for a few more months.
