That Girl in Yellow Boots Movie Review

 Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive 

That Girl in Yellow Boots attempts to put the audience through an emotional wringer too. But while director Anurag Kashyap gives you a bunch of riveting scenes, realistically flawed character sketches, and even light, comical quirks in this bleak drama, it’s tough to stay with Ruth through her journey because That Girl in Yellow Boots becomes predictable subsequently, and loses its initial momentum.Kashyap, who co-wrote the film with Koechlin, closes with a bold climax that uncovers the disturbing issue that the film addresses, but he doesn’t go for an easy resolution. I’m going with three out of five for That Girl in Yellow Boots. Even if the story itself leaves you wanting more, the storytelling makes you go the distance.

THAT GIRL IN YELLOW BOOTS is not your emblematic desi flick. It speaks a new language and has the unflinching approach of individualist director Anurag Kashyap. The screenplay is such that it keeps you estimating as to what’s going to happen subsequently, till the finale hits you like a ton of bricks. Truly, this is not your characteristic desi flick.On the whole, THAT GIRL IN YELLOW BOOTS is yet another outstanding example of independent cinema. This Anurag Kashyap film caters to a more evolved, cinema literate audience. The film may not boast of big stars or may not be very huge on hype and hoopla, but it is a gem of a movie that should be watched for its powerful plot and terrific execution of the written material. Watch this film if you want to see cinema from India beyond the routine Bollywoodish stuff.

Always the unexpected, Anurag? Never, never go looking for the predictable in this maverick filmmaker’s films and you’ll rarely be disappointed. For, Anurag truly likes to push the frontiers of contemporary Indian cinema and genuinely believes in saying something new, something different, something meaningful. And yes, he always loves to shock and awe….Go for the different experience. Not meant for those who like run-of-the-mill stuff, That Girl in Yellow Boots is quintessential independent cinema.

Yellow Boots, co-written by him and wife Kalki Koechlin, also essaying the ‘Girl‘ in the title, is a compilation of abstract frames, which often stir from their surreal state to expose the ugly, upsetting corners of society. The narrative refuses, almost doggedly, to follow a conventional structure. Instead like fluttering pages of a disorderly diary, it is puzzling, self-indulgent, wandering and personal.Sleekness alone, however, doesn’t make a film. There’s a lot about That Girl in Yellow Boots that insists you bank on assumption because it strives on build-up. When the moment of truth arrives, while never as staggering as, say Oldboy, it is rather disconcerting.

The superbly crafted, wonderfully acted and consistently evocative That Girl in Yellow Boots paints a dark, dismal and desperate portrait of life inside Mumbai’s daunting entrails where Ruth hopes to find salvation and a father who went missing from her life when she was only five.One might quibble about the director holding his punches in portraying the ‘physical’ dimensions of the moral quagmire that Ruth is trapped in, but That Girl in Yellow Boots is a significant step forward for Kashyap. It is well-nigh his most controlled film to date: the style, fluid and unobtrusive, complements the theme rather than overshadow it.

Anurag Kashyap’s ability to create this kind of grunge, and characters who live on the margins, is matchless. But by now we’ve got used to it, as well as his skill in laying it out for our delectation. By now we want the next level.Where ‘The Girl In Yellow Boots’ stopped being satisfactory is when I started wanting more, and didn’t get it. What’s under all this nicely-shot gunk? I come up with a few sharp specks. No more.

Dark.Disturbing.Distressing.Kudos to Anurag Kashyap for handling such a volatile subject with deadpan honesty.What Anurag Kashyap tried to experiment with in NO SMOKING, he has succeeded with THAT GIRL IN YELLOW BOOTS. Kashyap is known for experimenting with alternate cinema throwing in that shock value. With this film, he shocks. BIG TIME. You may not be able to enjoy the movie, but you will definitely take home a lesson. A lesson Anurag has clinically passed on with an underlying, chilling message: Children from broken families are always broken from the inside. No matter how tough they appear from the outside.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Rahul Gangwani Site:Filmfare

When a major part of the story contains a girl giving handjobs to strangers, you know the film is going to be unsettling and disturbing. That Girl In Yellow Boots is an addition to Anurag Kashyap’s brand of different cinema. It’s bold and confrontational but it leaves you wistful.Sadly, the film doesn’t manage to create a solid impact. It lacks the drama a film with this subject could have had. There are some hard-hitting moments and some shocking twists but they are not exploited satisfactorily. This might come as a dampener for an insatiable audience.The Girl in Yellow Boots is a decent film and manages to engross you in bits and parts. The story provides the necessary shock and awe that would creep you out of your skin. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come through well.
