If you are using Corona lights, shadows will be realistically soft - however they will also be realistically colored, that is, only from light from other non-shadowed sources falling into that same area. Everything in Corona is physically realistic :)

You can get faked colored shadows by using native C4D lights. Not sure how shadow softness is with those though.

Also adding to what has mentioned, A small light source will produce sharp shadows and a large light source will soften the shadows. If you go larger you will need to reduce the light intensity as this will overexpose your scene.
