COFFIN MAKER is a life changing film. It represents cinema that inspires! Set against the authentic and seductive spirit of a Goan Village, CoffinMaker is a poignant tale about a reluctant Coffin Maker who learns about life from a very unusual and mysterious source.
COFFIN MAKER exemplifies the genius and the exceptional talent of Nasseruddin yet again. Randeep Hooda looking very dapper and handsome,more like a charming Hollywood hero, in the best performance of his life with his real life mentor Nassersaab. It’s a constant battle of wits between the two protagonists in a mental game that transports the
inspirational film to a very different level. Ratna Pathak Shah plays Nasseruddin’s catholic wife Isabella that will surely charm the audience yet again.

Coffin Maker is a film that every Indian, be it professionals,Parents, Schools should watch as it has the gravity, Charm, humour and a soul that celebrates the magic, called life.
Besides the high concept content that attracted Nasseruddin and Randeep Hooda, every single character in the film is real as Ratna Pathak Shah as Isabella, Benjamin Gilani, Amit Sial, Mahabanoo Mody-Kotwal, Shilpa Shukla have substantially contributed in the excellence of its execution, under the direction and vision of Veena Bakshi.

background. It is a part of Entertaining cinema that inspires, and I genuinely hope that all Indians will watch it and get inspired. It will make Indian cinema proud in the world stage. Even the music of Bapi-Tutul and songs by Hema Sardesai captures the essence and the sunshine spirit of Goa.Coffin Maker represents the blueprint of dealing with  life in an entertaining way. Watch it!”
