Ruth’s quest in finding lost relatives begins when her father suddenly disappears after her sisters death. Years later she is contacted by a mysterious man on the internet claiming to be her father. Desperateness drives Ruth to find her father and to get answers as to why he left so abruptly.

After being contacted by this mysterious person, Ruth leaves her home county of England and moves to India.

Torn between several schemes, Mumbai holds unfamiliar records of strange events in a familiar city backdrop. In the metropolis city with explosive eruptions of a million types of dreams and fears, Ruth is determined to find her father. Ruth’s futile struggles for independence leaves her sucked into a deep seeded tonic reflex of politics in the city’s underbelly.

While in crime infested areas, no one takes notice that there is a girl in yellow boots roaming around dangerous areas looking for answers. They give no second thought to who the girl in yellow boots is or her purpose. Little do they know that this girl is out to uncover lost secret, that girl with yellow boots is on a mission.

Even though the girl with yellow boots is at the center of crime, Ruth’s only thoughts, “I must find my parent, I can not give up searching for my father.”

A city that feeds on her misery, a love that eludes her and above all, a devastating truth that she must encounter.

As Ruth’s quest begins to close, a summary of things to fall apart begins. Just as Ruth thinks she’s found all the questions answered about her life, many more questions arise. Ultimately she does find her father, however, the happy reunion that she’d hoped for is not be in the cards. The final twist in this tangled saga of a lonely sad girl looking for for answers ends ups even more daunting than even Ruth herself thought.

Kalki Koechlin’s Review

‘I’ve always thought boots make a fascinating metaphor for struggle and survival.

They walk through intense highs and extreme lows, into murky waters, above rugged paths. Not always above suspicion though, their darker comes into play when the tough exterior of a sole tramples on soft, blameless grass. Nevertheless, they amble on, till the wear and tear of daily dirt and stressful challenges puts an end to their travels.

That Girl in Yellow Boots Story, with its enigmatic title and descriptive imagery, does not always present reflective lettering or reflective thinking as I would have liked it to be, it is, ultimately, an Anurag Kashyap film, which amounts to a certain level of edge and blatancy. Known to push the envelope with his uncompromising vision around stark subjects without prioritizing the profit retained aspect, Kashyap commands respect among his colleagues, collaborators, critics, and cinema goers with good reason.’

Anurag Kashyap’s (Director) Review

‘According to a Anurag Kashyap interview, That Girl in Yellow Boots is about a British girl named Ruth (Koechlin) living in Mumbai and working at a shady massage parlor without a permit. Unlike the easy-to-fleece phirangs, one is accustomed to seeing in Bollywood films, Ruth is street-smart, speaks (and cusses) in broken Hindi and knows her way around red-tape India.’

‘If I rely on reason, I’d say she’s no damsel-in-distress but a voluntary freak with low self-worth and tendency to complicate life. I believe that Ruth is just a young, needy and unapologetic about her choices or exploitations.’

‘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.’
