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 happening in her life. In school, she is a backbencher and is constantly bullied by the popular queen-be Shamira. At home, She`s trying to figure out how to deal with living in a broken home. In a middle of all this chaos, she falls madly in love with an older, brooding heart breaker. When her love story comes to a humiliating end, and she`s 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 that she has a great time in the journey, filling it with delicious desserts, funny teacher, school crushes, and Shammi Kapoor dances. Gippi is a coming of age story of an ordinary, over weight 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 at the top of her own little world.
