Total Articles: 68
Gippi Star Cast: Riya Vij, Divya Dutta, Jayati Modi, Arbaz Kadwani, Taaha Shah
Director: Sonam Nair
The movie is about Gurpreet Kaur, 'Gippi' a 14 year old girl who lives in Shimla with her mother Pappi (Divya Dutta) and her younger brother Booboo (Arbaz Kadwani). She is overweight, she is insane and is trying to deal with the physical, emotional and social changes that accompany a growing teenage girl. She loves eating ice-cream, loves dancing to Shammi Kapoor's songs and is a fun-loving and care-free girl. Many of us could surely relate to this young girl instantly.
She is going through a stage which most of us could relate to very easily. She is in-confident, she is fat, she falls off the chair in the class, goofs up with the chemistry experiments, falls down in the PT class, hates the typical girly conversations, has her BFF, hates the high school bitch, is not too keen in boys of her age. It is the story of that transition period of a girl from her teens to her adulthood.
She has to deal with the bullying of queen-bee Shamira the rich, intelligent and sexy spoilt school kid (Jayati Modi) at school, living with a broken home.
She meets this young, dashing high school student, Arjun (Taaha Shah) at her father's engagement party and falls in love with this older guy. But she is disheartened when he along with his friends reject her at a party publicly.
Disheartened by her lover, denounced by friends, immensely unpopular in school, Gippi finally revokes back and challenges Shamira, by standing against her at the school elections!
Talking about performances the lead actress, Riya Vij is delightful and could be related to very well. Her effortless-ness shows on screen. And she matches to the level of co-star Divya Dutta easily.
Divya Dutta plays her role of a typical Punjabi single mother perfectly. Jayati Modi as Shamira was once again a perfect cast. She plays the role of an evil, mean school girl very well.
Taaha Shah as Arjun and Raqesh Vashisth as the Chemistry teacher were not explored as much as they could be.
One of the most entertaining character of the movie was BooBoo, Gippi's brother played by Arbaz Kadwani. He was brilliant and was at par with all the other actors.
Talking about debut director Sonam Nair, she touched the critical aspects of a girls life carefully. She has touched topics such as PMS, developing chests, waxing, un-plucked eyebrows with sensitivity. The mother-daughter bonding is also dealt with emotionally.
Young Adults may agree with what is shown, but may be their parents would not like seeing 14 somethings indulging in green-tee's, house parties, affairs and hot-bods.
A one time watch, Gippi surely reminded me of my school days.
