Critical reception[edit]

The film received mixed reviews from the critics.

Kshamaya Daniel for Rediff.com has given 4/5 stars and says Gippi is a movie meant for teens. And it has all the necessary teen masala—romance, a makeover, cheesy humour and loud music.[4] Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama gave the movie a rating of 3.5/5 stars and said "On the whole, GIPPI is a credible take on the 'coming-of-age' variety of movies. This one's straight from the heart. Sweet, simple, emotionally engaging, heart-warming cinema!"[5] Madhureeta Mukherjee of the Times of India gave the movie 3/5 stars mentioning " 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."[6] in.com also gave the film a favourable review saying it would "take adults down memory lane while connecting with teenagers at the same time."[7] Rajeev Masand from CNN-IBN gave the movie 2/5 stars saying that "Ultimately, this could have been a sweet, unusual tale about the triumph of a nerd, yet it's let down by its affected tone."[8]
