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 film-making. It is an artistic and wholesome experience.
Kalki’s quest for her missing father is a sad, quixotic, twisted tale of love and longing with a climax that rattles you. Also, it’s a sordid and tragic tale of incest and sexual abuse that are such an intrinsic part of a society that still doesn’t know how to treat its women.
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.
