  •  Bollywood Hungama -taran adarsh rating-7
TAARE ZAMEEN PAR. STANLEY KA DABBA. CHILLAR PARTY... Several prominent film-makers have made films that transport you to your early days. Now Karan Johar takes you back to your teenage years with GIPPI, directed by first-timer Sonam Nair. While this is Karan/Dharma's first film with a lady director,

  •  Times of India -madhureeta mukherjee rating-6
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

  •  NDTV -saibal chatterjee rating-5
Yippee, it’s Gippi! Sadly, that isn’t the reaction that this well-intentioned but uneven film is likely to elicit. A low budget release from Dharma Productions is certainly news. It isn’t news, however, when a film about growing up isn’t quite all that grown up. For all its attempts to look and feel different

  •  koimoi -mohar basu rating-5
Gippi is an irresistibly penned fairy tale that has the only stilted flaw of working on clich├ęs. For most part it is feel-good, except its dragging hackneyed bits that butcher the delightful impression that it manages. Clubbing adolescent antics along with the transformation of Gippi

  •  CNN-IBN -rajeev masand rating-4
Despite its promising premise, evocative of the quirky American comedy Napoleon Dynamite, writer-director Sonam Nair's debut film hits rough patches because the writing is so derivative, few of the characters feel particularly original or interesting.The key tragedy with the film is that while

  •  Mumbai Mirror -karan anshuman rating-5
They aren't going to care that the conflict took a while coming, before the slice-of-life film turned into a coming-of-age one. They won't care that a significant amount of information comes across in montages. Will it matter to them that Hollywood has been playing with these cliches for

  •  Rediff -kshamaya daniel rating-8
Gippi is not one of KJo’s usually glamorous productions, so the costumes are simple. In most of the scenes involving Gippi, she’s usually wearing her signature purple pyjamas or her school uniform (which is scandalously short), with the occasional sprinkle of a fabulous party dress or a kurti

  •  Indian Express -shubra gupta rating-4
Bollywood's awakening to the age of teens, and the in-between individuals who live in this zone, is a fairly new thing. Gippi takes the genre further down the road with its 14-year-old protagonist, more tween than teen. Gippi is roly poly, likes jiving to Shammi Kapoor songs, and thinks nothing

  •  zee news -ananya bhattacharya rating-6
Gippi’, while at one level, neatly draws out issues that teenage is peppered with, at another, leaves one with a few warm, heartfelt messages on life too. Sonam Nair, from underneath the director’s hat, does a largely commendable job of bringing on celluloid this story of coming to terms with the

  •  DNA -tushar joshi rating-5
Gippi is happy being herself until she has a crush on someone elder to her. From that point onwards, her character goes through a series of events where we watch her talk about periods, explain the term horny to her best friend, decide to contest the school election, stand by her mom who’s going

  •  Bollywood Life -deboshree ghosh rating-5
But director Sonam Nair fails to portray the verdure of kiddie times. It’s not the kind of film that will keep you hooked from beginning to end. If it’s slick in parts, there are also scenes that make you yawn to your heart’s content. For example the kids and their mommy (Divya Dutta) dancing on evergreen

  •  Daily Bhaskar -mayank shekar rating-7
This is a fairly intimate story (smartly written and directed by Sonam Nair) made so real by an unselfconscious performance by the lead actor (Riya Vij) who couldn’t herself be over 14 or 15 years old while the camera stays on her almost throughout, enlarging her face to 30 times its size as she

  •  One India -puri rating-6
riya vij is an excellent choice for the role of Gippy. She is a natural actor and deserve an applause for her performance. Nobody can play the role Gippi's mother so convincingly as Divya Dutta. She brilliantly portrays the role of a single mother, who is abandoned by her husband for some other

  •  Deccan Chronicle -suparna sharma rating-5
Karan Johar is getting personal and I’m lovin’ it. Last week he gave us a queer peek into Bollywood bedrooms, a reality he should be familiar with. He’d been there before, of course. But his last outing, Dostana, was juvenile. His second comment, in Bombay Talkies’ Ajeeb Dastaan Hai Yeh, was harsher,
