Director Anurag Kashyap has always managed to be something different, new and meaningful when it comes to the stories of his movies. His movies are dark, broody and psychological anxiety in form and meaning. The Bollywood helmer's latest movie That Girl in Yellow Boots is not an exception. It is a fine specimen of his style of filmmaking. It is an artistic and wholesome experience.

That Girl in Yellow Boots is a tragic tale of British girl, who has come to India in search of her estranged father. The movie has been superbly crafted and wonderfully acted. It is a dark, dismal and desperate portrait of life inside Mumbai, where Ruth hopes to find salvation and a father. The movie also throws light on incest and sexual abuse, which have become an intrinsic part of our society.

Ruth (Kalki Koechlin) is a girl from England and has come to Mumbai to find her Indian father, who abandoned her family when she was a kid. She is without a work permit, which drives her to work at a massage parlour. She starts dating a drug addict Prashant (Prashant Prakash). A city that feeds on her misery, a love that eludes her and above all, a devastating truth that she must encounter. And everyone wants a piece of her. Will she find her father or not? This will be answered in the climax.

As Ruth, Kalki has delivered a wonderful performance and she has lived up to the expectations of her role. Naseeruddin Shah, Prashant and Gulshan have also added a lot of depth and conviction to their characters. Naren Chandavarkar and Benedict Taylor's music, Rajeev Ravi's cinematography and Shweta Venkat Mathew's editing also commendable.
