Aarti Pictures (1989)

WARNING: This logo is loud, so please turn down your speakers.

Logo: We are on a blurry dark background, with candle lights. The camera starts to focus, showing that the candles are placed on a five-flame lamp (similar to the 1st logo of National Arts). Then, the camera moves up and zooms out, while we see the silhouette of the statue of a God (in the middle of two candles) with a trident in one of its four hands, on a red and blue background with some smoke. After this, two lights reveal the statue of the God up-to-down, which has a pendant of flowers (among other things, like a cobra around its neck) and a diadem with a half moon. The camera zooms into the head of the God. The camera then cuts on the full statue of the God and zooms into its feet, where we see "Aarti PICTURES' Present" in red. "Aarti" and "Present" are written in a script font.

Trivia: The god depicted in the statue is Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction.

FX/SFX: All the zooms and the movements made by the camera, the smoke, the lights and the rest is live action.

Music/Sounds: A deep note made by a wind instrument. When the camera is finishing moving up, several strums with a lyra are heard until the camera zooms into the head of the God (a la Murghan Enterprises). Finally, a short note of a horn.

Availability: Seen only on a thriller/horror movie called Sau Saal Baad.

Editor's Note: The jump-cut could catch someone off-guard. The horn note can also scare some people.
