Synopsis

Gippi is a 14-year-old girl who lives in Simla with her mother Pappi and little brother Booboo. She is overweight and awkward and doesn`t know how to handle the physical, emotional and social changes adolescence brings. In school she is a backbencher and is constantly bullied by the popular queen-bee Shamira and at home, she`s trying to figure out how to deal with living in a broken home. In the middle of all this chaos, she falls madly in love with an older, brooding heartbreaker. When her love story comes to a humiliating end and she is publicly scorned, she decides to take her life in her hands and accepts Shamira`s challenge to stand against her in the school elections.

Whatever the final outcome might be Gippi makes sure she has a great time in the journey, filling it with delicious desserts, funny teachers, school crushes, and Shammi Kapoor dances. `Gippi` is a coming-of-age story of an ordinary, overweight girl, who through the course of the film learns to love herself for exactly who she is. It is also a tale of an underdog who picks herself up from nothing and finds herself at the top of her own little world.
