The year 2001 was quite profitable for Bollywood since a fair amount of movies were released, which went on to do good business at the box office. Cinegoers remember the year 2001 as the year Aamir Khan’s ‘Lagaan’ went to the Oscars; but then there were many other films from the same year that left an indelible mark on the audiences and helped rake in a lot of moolah.
Some movies with A-list actors in the lead failed to hit the bulls-eye because of weak scripts, while others with good stories had poor performances by the lead actors, which did not impress the viewers. But from an average viewer’s point of view, the first year of the new millennium, saw some great movies, with amazing stories, with talented actors in the lead and here we bring to you a list of top Hindi films from the year 2001, which really wowed us.
12. Chori Chori Chupke Chupke
Directed by Abbas-Mustan, the film had quickly garnered negative publicity close to its release since it touched upon the topic of surrogacy, at a time when India was not ready to talk openly about the subject. Breaking all stereotypes and shunning all negativity, ‘Chori Chori Chupke Chupke’ became the first ever Indian movie to shed light (albeit with a lot of masala) on the controversial topic and succeed in it too. The Salman Khan, Rani Mukerji and Preity Zinta starrer was well received at the box office and people had finally become more receptive to handle such topics as a medium of entertainment.
