That Girl in Yellow Boots is a thriller tracing Ruth's search for her father - a man she hardly knew but cannot forget. Desperation drives Ruth to work without a permit at a massage parlour; a job her boyfriend procures for her. Torn between several schisms, Mumbai becomes the alien yet strangely familiar backdrop for Ruth's quest. In the metropolis erupting with a million screaming dreams and fears, Ruth struggles to find her independence and space even as she is sucked deeper into the labyrinthine politics of the city's underbelly. And everyone wants a piece of her. -- (C)… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film's value is in its portrait of Ruth, and her independence as a solo outsider in a vast, uncaring city."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"This sordid soap opera ... goes beyond gritty and into the realm of grimy -- and, at times, downright icky"
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"Anurag Kashyap's 'That Girl in Yellow Boots' boosts strong performances of characters playing out a gritty script"
‑ John Esther, UR Chicago Magazine
"Koechlin, a striking woman with a slim frame, horse mouth, and big turbulent eyes, has screen presence enough to kick along the frequently-stalling psychodrama up to an ending that seems like a tossing up of hands."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"The yarn flounders under a crush of declamatory dialogue, sheds its plumage in an overheated final act and no amount of delirious closeups of Koechlin's lovely face (shot by her director husband, Anurag Kashyap) can restore its sheen."
‑ Xan Brooks, Guardian
"The film's arc is predictable - not least because Kashyap doesn't show us much of the local city to help us escape from her lurid life."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Post
"Flounders into a predictable series of extravagantly well-lit clichés that tend to plague daughter-seeks-daddy narratives."
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
