Quirky funny and an exciting new film

Cast:Riya Vij, Taaha ShahDirector:Sonam NairSchool can be a difficult place if you're overweight, awkward, not particularly bright, or clumsy on the sports field. Gurpreet Kaur, the 14-year-old protagonist of Gippi (Riya Vij), ticks all the boxes. She's r

Gippi is a feel-good drama and everything, even an overdose of clumsy preaching, is fair when the principal pursuit is happiness. We encounter ‘life’ on school and college campuses rather frequently in Hindi cinema – the last time we did so was as recentl
In 1977 Gulzar made a small film 'Kitaab' featuring a life of a teenager school boy. Similarly in the year 1999 Nagesh Kukunoor made a film 'Rockford', based on a teenager boy's life in a hostel. Both these films broke the barrier between children and tee

Worth a watch!

At the outset, 'Gippi' promises to be a coming of age film, dealing with the issues of a teenager, but the issues need to be looked into and retold as a story
Gippi is not without flaws and there is very little originality to it. Even then, it stays close to being the feel-good movie that we all need once in a while. Take your kids to this one. It’s worth a one-time watch.

It is a first attempt from our industry to tackle this issue and none other than Dharma productions is behind it.

Growing old is compulsory but growing up is optional.. well Dharama Productions this time take the optional route with this sweet little charmer of a film where the focus is on growing up and being yourself a 'star' in your own world. 'Yahoo'.. this ode to the spirit of Shammi Kapoor is smartly and convincingly done by Sonam Nair in her first outing as a director where she tells us the story with a sweet little enthusiasm without becoming saccharine and seems to be fully obsessed with the subject like a first teenage infatuation.
India Glitz
Gippi is a coming-of-age flick that doesn't quite come of age.

Class 9. You're fat. You're insecure. You think you can dance. But you trip and fall. A lot. The mirror is your best friend

On the whole, Gippi is a childish take on adolescence and will face an uphill task at the ticket windows

There will be times when you find yourself thinking how over-the-top certain sequences were, but in retrospect, Gippi still emerges a winner and I’ll urge all you parents to take your teenager for this flick – It’s vital for their self-esteem! Kanika Rajani

Teenage syrup for adolescents, passable
Bharat Student
Gippi is fun Gippi is relatable and Gippi is every bit adorable. A film should definitely make a hit at least among the school kids especially as the film smartly releases during the summer vacations!

Before you watch Girlfriend, it is important to be clear why you are going.

Kudos goes to Karan Johar for taking on the subject and the film which the audience will truly enjoy

Tigmanshu Dhulia makes his own job easier with some brilliant casting of the characters since each of them play their role with ease. His direction undoubtedly is the best thing in the movie. While the first half of the movie concentrates on introducing t

We all go through that period and fight, jump or crawl our way out of it.

Even if a child leads a protected existence, he or she will face situations and issues that are universally an accepted part of a young adolescent’s life, and Gippi tries to bring to us, for the first time in Indian cinema, the perspective of a small town

 The movie explores the pre-puberty phase when we would be the most critical of ourselves and found it tough to come to terms with the changes that happened within and around us.
