Plot: The film revolves around the lives of Rohan, a class X student, and his friend Magic Uncle who helps him through his difficult times .

Review: Exams have become synonymous with pressure to perform and tension in today's time. And this pressure takes its toll on students, especially the class X and XII students who are exposed to stress and depression, sometimes due to the parents' demanding behaviour too.

Rohan Pradhan (Yash Shah) is an extremely bright kid who excels in all his preliminary exams. But when faced with the class X final exams, the youngster faces problems as he cannot remember anything that he studied for. He panics and stresses out feeling he will fail in the exam and tries to commit suicide even. He is saved by the spirit of Magic Uncle (Tom Alter) who used to be Rohan's best friend and who he confided in. Magic Uncle tells Rohan to relax and let go off his worries in order to do well in the remaining papers. Rohan agrees and all of a sudden there is a new zest in his life that starts worrying his parents who think that the exams have taken a toll on Rohan's mental well-being. But after visits to a psychiatrist and a tantric, they are convinced otherwise. What follows is how Rohan helps other who are on the verge of committing suicide due to the same problems he faced.

The subject is universal and the timing of the release couldn't have been better with the class X result being declared a few days back. The film conveys a very important message for kids as well as for parents. While it tells kids to relax and focus instead of just mugging up during exams, the film also advises parents to understand that their children are not meant to handle so much stress at a young age. Another message that it passes on is that you have to help yourself instead of relying n someone else to do your work.

Although not technically sound, the film brings out Tom Alter's bubbly behaviour and Yash's acting skills. It is a treat to watch Tom's energy onscreen and the ease with which he portrays the role. 'Daptar' will strike a chord with kids and is a must watch for their parents as well.
