It currently has a 43% rating on Nollywood Reinvented with a conclusion that "...it’s quite the placid movie, it’s not emotionally moving in any way. However, if you look at it at some kind of foundation of what we hope for in Nollywood productions then it makes the movie that much more appealing." YNaija praised the film and concluded that "the film [is] more admired than loved. It shows that with the right hands, Nollywood can make a decent movie, and this is a decent film indeed.", It however singled out the yoruba performance of Deji (Kalu Ikeagwu) as the only negative in the film. Amarachukwu Iwuala of Entertainment Express was very critical of the directing and felt that attention was not properly given to many important details of the film. Dami Elebe of Connect Nigeria praised the plot, acting and production but felt that the editing and directing should have been better.
