Visuals: There is a table with two candles. In between them there's a Christian Virgin Mary with a child on her right shoulder. A starry flare then appears from the chest of the Virgin. The screen fades out, and then the screen fades in to the same table with the same candles, but this time the Virgin is replaced with a model of an armed man riding a white horse while killing a dark monster (actually is Saint George with his lance killing the Dragon of Libya). The words "JUBILEE PRODUCTIONS" are seen in front.

Variant: On Marupuram, the two shots are reversed. In the second part appearing first, "PRESENT" is cheaply added below the name. Then it fades to the Virgin part with "JELITTA" in front of it. The respective music is swapped.

Technique: Most of it is live-action, but the star flare would have been added with some effects.

Audio: A slow, very sombre, three-note synth theme, with two dissonant deep synth sounders (resembles a bell tolling) after the flare appears. On the second part, a slowly rising trumpet fanfare plays.

Audio Variants: On Marupuram, the audio is switched as the second part's audio plays at the beginning.

Availability: It was seen on some movies, includes Aattakkalaasham, Aaa Raathri, Ente Upasana, Marupuram, Bhoomiyile Rajakkanmar, My Dear Muthachan and Manu Uncle.
