Directed by Veena Bakshi, The Coffinmaker looks like a light-hearted, philosophical flick
As Naseeruddin Shah lies next to a coffin in the poster of the film The Coffinmaker, it already looks like a treat for offbeat movie lovers. The poster is very unconventional – a fresh breath of air from the fancy promotional material we usually come across. The story is about a coffin maker who lives in a small village in Goa and is a cynic to a great extent. He is disillusioned by life until he meets a visitor who teaches him the true meaning of our existence.
Apart from the non-conformist Naseer who’s known for taking up non-commercial, creative projects, the film also stars interesting actors like Randeep Hooda, Ratna Pathak Shah and Benjamin Gilani.
