Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai (Hindi: बस इतना सा ख़ाब है, Urdu: بس اتنا سا خواب ہے, English: It's Just a Small Dream) is a 2001 Hindi movie was written and directed by Goldie Behl. The film stars Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukerji, Sushmita Sen and Jackie Shroff. It was a Disaster at the box-office.
Suraj (Abhishek Bachchan), a simple village bumpkin who sings the songs of Ganga maiyya, comes to Mumbai from Benaras to earn a degree in college. He gets smitten by a light-eyed beauty Pooja (Rani Mukerji). After some dilly-dallying the duo express their love for each other.
Suraj has big dreams. He wants to emulate his mentor Naved Ali (Jackie Shroff) a shrewd media baron. Then, one day, in a heroic deed in which apna gaon ka chora saves the life of a fatally wounded man, Suraj impresses Naved Ali. A flattered Naved sends his raunchy colleague Lara (Sushmita Sen) to rope in Suraj to start a new channel.
Slowly the callow youth becomes a clever businessman and Lara begins to take Pooja’s place. Pooja tries to convince Suraj of the futility of it all but only in vain. Suraj is determined to carve a place for himself in the higher echelons of the society. Soon he has everything he ever wanted and dreamed of – a swanky bungalow, sleek cars etc. But he has lost his innocence.
And one day Suraj realizes the dastardly motives of Naved Ali (who wants to become the PM of the country) and how he has been used as a pawn in his power game.
The rest of movie is about how Suraj gets redemption for all pain caused to his loved ones.
