Two comedy films "Jolly LLB" and "Mere Dad Ki Maruti" had picked up business on the second day of their release.

"Jolly LLB" starring Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani was the only movie that had raked in a decent collection of approximately ₹3 crore on its opening day. The courtroom comedy drama film witnessed around a 40 percent jump on the second day and minted ₹4.23 crore.

The two-day total of the film now stands at ₹7.35 crore.

 "#JollyLLB witnesses 40%-50% jump at plexes on Saturday. Collects ₹4.23 cr on Sat. Total: ₹7.35 cr," trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted.

The film, which is a social satire on India's legal system, also features Amrita Rao in a female lead role. The film received positive to mixed reviews from critics. "Jolly LLB" was released along with "Mere Dad ki Maruti" and "3G", but it raked in better collections at the box office.

"Mere Dad ki Maruti" starring Saqib Saleem, Ram Kapoor and Prabal Panjabi had a poor response on the opening day. Although the film got good reviews, it failed to attract audiences on the first day.

But the business of the film picked up on Saturday and it witnessed around a 40 percent jump in its earnings. The collections are especially better in North Indian circuits.

"#MereDadKiMaruti witnessed an upward trend on Saturday. Witnessed around 40% jump in some circuits. Numbers being compiled," Adarsh said.

Ashima Chibber's directorial film is set in the backdrop of a Punjabi wedding in North India and the story revolves around a boy Sameer (played by Saqib Saleem) who steals his dad's (Ram Kapoor) car to impress a college girl.
