Critic Reviews for That Girl in Yellow Boots

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (5)

  • The film's value is in its portrait of Ruth, and her independence as a solo outsider in a vast, uncaring city.

    December 15, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A word about Kalki's performance: she literally slips into the shoes of the protagonist and essays the anguish of a lonely, lost soul effortlessly.

    February 28, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Where The Girl In Yellow Boots stopped being satisfactory is when I started wanting more, and didn't get it.

    March 29, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A brave performance from Kalki Koechlin is certainly the highlight, but not the only reason to seek out this film.

Audience Reviews for That Girl in Yellow Boots

  • Nov 28, 2011
    Predictability. Stupidity. Even after accepting that I'm not to expect logic from a fictional tale, the way it's all summed up only left me extremely annoyed at the end of the movie. Thank goodness that I soon had a distraction, and therefore, it lasted only for moments. SPOILER ALERT: Maybe some Indians are still too conservative to digest such stories, but there are many exceptional cases like me. So, saying that its gritty subject is why I've rated it this low (or is it high according to you?) isn't applicable here. It doesn't matter whether or not you're Indian, it's the stupidity that pissed me off. Ruth goes to her father's house, but leaves it before even facing him and trying to know the truth. Without getting to the core of the issue, she asks for a gun & gets one. Now, when she already knows why she's asking for a gun, why not use it? Is the gun not real? Or does it not have any bullet? Or it doesn't work? Or was it just to scare him? Unless any of those highly unlikely circumstances, why not use it? I thought she'd shoot him or herself, but nopes. I don't find that realistic, if that's the excuse. But who knows, to each, their own.
