Jia aur Jia is an upcoming Hindi film staring Richa Chadha and Kalki Koechlin. Story of the film revolves around a road trip that changes the fate of their lives. Both the women in the film are named Jia though Kalki plays a fun loving, free spirited girl who is not afraid to do anything and rather lives her life in the moment. While Richa plays a woman who is scared and a bit uptight in terms of her mannerisms and social behavior. It is a classic tale where 2 polar opposites have been kept in a single situation and than the character study happens.
Usually there is a romantic angle to such stories, when a girl and a boy are stuck in a situation and at the end they fall in love. jia aur Jia is about 2 grown women trying to explore life and times through travel and one (Richa) also seems to be coming of age. Both kalki and Richa are one of the very few actresses who are immensely celebrated despite the fact that commercial successes of their films have not been too much and it will be very interesting to see their dynamics rubbing on one another.
The film just does not have them in it, it is a film about them. Directed by Howard Rosemeyer, who has been a choreographer, actor in Hindi film industry for over a decade now and is debuting in direction with Jia aur Jia.
