That Girl in Yellow Boots








Director - Anurag Kashyap

Genre - Thriller/Drama/Mystery


You know you're witnessing the work of a truly gifted director when every shot feels fresh to your eyes, every turn of the plot feels new. Kalki Koechlin (the lead) wrote the script for this movie with her husband Anurag Kashyap (director). Raw and filled with a kind of playfulness only a filmmaker who loves cinema to death could bring to life, this film is undeniable proof that if the heart is in the right place, the sincerity of the art will not disappoint. A sort of mystery/thriller/drama, the story weaved and curved in ways delighted us as we took in the beauty of Koechlin's naturalistic performance. The director's evident fun in creating a piece of cinema that is unlike any that we've ever seen thrilled us totally too. If Kashyap is the future of Indian cinema it is looking brighter than ever to us.

4.5 STARS!
