Janta Chitra

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

1st Logo (March 18, 1959-June 10, 1960)

Visuals: The first element shown is a Hindu temple. It then zooms to the doors of the temple with the company name fading in. The logo zooms in to what's inside the temple where we see a statue of Durga riding a tiger. The screen then zooms in further to the statue where it holds for 10 seconds before fading to black.

Technique: Fading effects.

Audio: A simple repeating eight note bell tune with a male chanting in Hindi.

Availability: Seen on Nache Nagin Baje Been and Kali Topi Lal Rumal.

2nd Logo (December 1, 1964-1974)

Visuals: Against a smoky background with two candles faintly visible to the side, a silhouette of a different statue of Durga fades in and out a few times, getting more and more clear. Eventually, it finally fades in altogether and we slowly zoom into it. It fades out eventually. Like many Indian logos there is no indicator of the company name.

Technique: Live-action.

Audio: The sounds of thunder, and some bells accompanying a lady singing in Hindi with a trumpet fanfare playing once the flashing stops all together.

Availability: Seen on Ganga Ki Lahren, Guhanon Ka Devta, Hamara Adhikar and Gaal Gulabi Nain Sharabi.
