Jia aur Jia is the directorial debut of Howard Rosemeyer and captures the journey of women with the same name who embark upon a road trip exploring themselves and the other all the while trying to outrun a past, make new memories in hope of a life worth remembering.
Bollywood’s been producing a lot of mid-life crisis, self discovering movies lately, and Jia aur Jia is just another one of them. Leading actresses Kalki Koechlin and Richa Chadda both play characters named Jia who find themselves in a road trip to Sweden on a path to self discovery. Koechlin, plays the owner of a bakery in Panchgami and due to tight budget meets Chadda’s character online, a banker with whom she splits the budget for the trip.
Kalki Koechlin’s Jia is a free spirited soul who is bold and adventurous, and Richa Chadda’s Jia is predictably the opposite. They start bickering from the moment they lay eyes on each other on their flight. As they start exploring the alleys of Sweden, Koechlin’s Jia makes Chadda’s Jia step out of her comfort zone and brings out the wild animal in her. Chadda’s Jia, who is running away from her past, with time learns Koechlin’s Jia also has something she’s trying to outrun. Eventually they become friends and tragedy strikes when they least expect it. The movie gives you the package of everything that comes with self discovery, the drama, the mistakes you make, the lessons you learn and how you are not the only one lost in this world and if you are lucky enough, you will find someone to help you through your journey.
