Gippi
Report dated 10/05/2013 @ 1:58 PM

Gippi Cast: Riya Vij, Divya Dutta, Arbaz Kadwani, Jayati Modi, Taaha Shah, Doorva Tripathi
Direction: Sonam Nair

She's a typical 14-year-old, hungering for junk food and caring-a-damn about her unwaxed legs and unplucked eyebrows. She's no topper. Far from a head-turner. She's Gippi (Riya), a gregarious, gol-matol gal. The bindaas backbencher, who doesn't sweat over low scores in class, or being overweight with mass. Damn the parlours, beauty queens, gossip gals and fashion magazines, these aren't her favourite subjects. There's lot more going on in her small world of 'heavy-weight' teenage troubles.

Gippi is the class klutz and the butt of jokes; no thanks to motaapa and her 'boyfriendless' status. She shares her naivete (and other 'horny' secrets and 'men'strual issues) with her BFF Aanchal (Doorva). Gippi's strongest support is her bro Booboo (Arbaz), as well-rounded as his name, and single supermom (Divya) who grooms her on everything from bras to boyfriends. When the Mean-Bee, Shamira (Jayati), challenges Gippi to compete at the school elections, she suddenly finds a goal, but will the free-spirited Gippi transform herself in to one of the 'mean girls'?

Riya shows her adolescence angst with childlike mannerisms and sweet, spontaneous reactions. Jayati is a regular high-school hip babe; Doorva is endearing with her oil-soaked plaits and guileless expressions. Arbaz entertains with his fetish for all things girlie, except the gals. Taaha scores well, and Divya Dutta excels in her part.

Sonam Nair's 'coming of puberty' film handles simple issues sensitively, though it doesn't delve too deep. The subtlety appeals, but lacks drama in the second half, with a mediocre climax. Teenagers will find a slice of their life in Gippi, and adults might protest to such 14-somethings extreme indulgences in fashion, hot-bods and green-tea diets. The mom-daughter moments exude emotions and shed the typical broken-home baggage. Overall, a simple story that stays pre-pubescent and doesn't quite grow into the high-school of stories.
