The film won positive reviews upon release, with a critic from Indolink.com noting it was "a soft and sentimental movie largely playing with human emotions, but ineffectively supported by screenplay and direction." The presence of bigger budget film releasing in the same period meant that the film went largely unnoticed at the box office.
