1st Logo (July 20, 1984)[]

VV Creations (July 20, 1984)

Logo: We see a portrait of a Indian girl with a red dot on her head (Bindi, usually applied on married woman, as a blessing, and it was also used to make girls more beautiful) and white garlands on her right. Around the portrait is decorations of red, yellow, and green lights/beads with around four rows of white garlands, and below them is a stack of the same flower. Sitting next to all of them is yellow, red, and white funeral candle, all lit, on both sides. They all meet on the blue background.

Trivia: The girl in the portrait is Vidhya, the daughter of Shoba. She was just 2 years old when she died, and her cause of death is unknown.

FX/SFX: Live action; nothing but a flame on the candle.

Music/Sounds: A sad-sounding woman speaking in Tamil, dedicating the film to a Vidhya's memory. Behind the voice is a bell at the beginning, then a funeral choir.

Availability: Extinct outside YouTube. Veettuku Oru Kannagi is the only film that contain this logo.

Scare Factor: None.

2nd Logo (February 22, 1985)[]

VV Creations (February 22, 1985)

Logo: We see a live action scene of an amusement park, where we see Vidhya of the portrait alive and the boy (Joseph Vijay), and the camera zooms on them. Then, the scene freezes and the name of the company and "Presents" in Tamil, in yellow, appear.

FX/SFX: Live action, the camera zooming on the children and the text when the scene stops.

Trivia: This is the only surviving footage of the founder's daughter and son, but it's no surprise that the logo freezes since it only last for a very short time, around 1 second.

Music/Sounds: A melody made with a faint piano, a xylophone and a sitar. It would mostly fit on the next logo because of its sorrowful melody.

Availability: Seen only on Puthu Yugam.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo (September 27, 1985-October 21, 1987)[]

VV Creations (1985)

Logo: The same girl portrait with the same decorations with only two white candles sitting next to the portrait and red garlands appears. Vijay prays, throws pedals of garlands, and hesitatingly prays again. We zoom in to the portrait, then "V.V.CREATIONS" fades in.

Trivia: The boy praying to his sister is Vijay, the son of Shoba. Vijay would later become the actor, starring in the 1984 film Vetri. This is also the last logo to feature child (at the time this logo was made) actor/son of Shoba and Vidhya.

FX/SFX: Live action with the name fading in.

Music/Sounds: A playful sitar theme. It would fit on the last logo, since it's more playful.

Availability: Films that contain this logo were Nangal Puthiyavargal/Marupallam and Vasantha Raagam.

Editor's Note: None.

4th Logo (April 23, 1987-February 14, 1991, June 25, 1999)[]

VV Creations (1989)

Logo: We slowly fly though many candles and a throne of a woman with a baby on her arm on a metal ground and a blue shine. We stop after 3 second pass. Blue smoke can be seen behind the figure along with a bright star on top of the figure.

Trivia: The woman is the Virgin Mary with Jesus in her arms.

FX/SFX: Live-action.

Music/Sounds: A sorrow four-note bell theme based on Christian music.

Availability: Rajanadai, Nenjinile, Neethikku Thandanai and Nanbargal contain this logo.

Editor's Note: None.

5th Logo (January 15, 2006-September 19, 2008)[]

VV Creations (2008)

Logo: We see the same Virgin as before, now golden and is standing on a golden cloud (think of it as Heaven). It zooms out from our view, revealing that we started at a closeup of the Virgin. As the figure turns, the golden shine cracks behind, shining more clouds and eventually the company name flashes by. First, the English name flashes in, shining elsewhere, then the Tamil translations, not the same as the second logo (as the VV was left in English), pops up.

FX/SFX: Fast-moving CGI.

Music/Sounds: 2 church bells, then a Christian-like choir with violins, drums, and a bass. No sitar this time.

Availability: Seen on two films; Aathi and Pandhaya.

Editor's Note: None.
