 2001: Defining Moments

Ring out the old. Ring in the new.

It's time to say goodbye as we bid fond farewell to 2001.
A year that had its share of ups and downs in our tinsletown.

But Bollywood came a long way this year as we rubbed shoulders with the best in International cinema at many a prestigious film festival.

rediff.com looks back in retrospect at the year that was.
