Is what we dream of what we really want to achieve? Or does it make sense to enjoy the seven colours of the rainbow than aim for that pot of gold at the end of it? Is it right to enjoy the oasis that is there or there no fun in life till you move away from the oasis and travel to a better place, knowing that what you see could be a mirage. Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai is exactly this. We trace the dreams and aspirations of a young man who wants nothing but a handful of sky, and discovers as he travels that the sky is merely the beginning. Inspired by media baron Naved Ali's (Jackie Shroff's) true blue rags to riches story, Suraj (Abhishek Bachchan) aspires to be like him. And herein begins the journey of young Suraj towards his ultimate goal. But at every turn that leads to his goal, Suraj discovers that what he thought and sought as his goal is merely a means and not the goal itself. Suraj finds love in Pooja (Rani Mukherji), understanding in Lara (Sushmita Sen), and a driving force in Naved Ali. But in his quest for the ultimate, Suraj loses along the way, the little things that he once had, the little means or the keys to his happiness. And when Suraj ultimately has his illusions fulfilled, he realises that his dreams are now shattered. He realises that now he has everything he wanted, but the price he is paying for it , is too high. "All I want is everything," is what Suraj had thought once, but now that he has it all, does he really want to keep it? This is what Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai is all about.
