The song was accepted with generally positive critics around these countries.

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song was shot in the period October–November 2009. It features Joksimović singing alone at a train station, where he then gets on the train where he continues to sing. The video had a mini-concert promotion on 9 December 2009 in the Expo center in Belgrade.[2] He opened the concert with the song and corresponding video, saying that he started it with this song because it is full of emotion. Of the promotion guests, some were people from the Serbian music scene.
