1st Logo (October 1, 1970-September 3, 1986)

Visuals: On a blue background, there is a multicolored "star" sending it's lights changing color very rapidly. The star zooms out to unveil a gold-to-orange paper background. Then, two silhouettes of bricks zoom in diagonally from their direction, clashing into each other too soon and then reveals themselves as the abstract letters "MR" in color yellow, with it's shadow still being black. On the bottom of it is the text "PRODUCTIONS" on a red-black Microgramma font appears one by one.

Variant: On some films, the text "PRIVATE LIMITED" in red wipes in below the word "PRODUCTIONS".

Technique: Cel animation.

Audio: A soft tampura with low-pitched xylophones and some high-pitched bells at the begginning, and then we hear a dramatic violin solo along with trumpets and if you listen closely you can hear also a group of women singing.

Audio Variants:

  • On Apne Paraye, the theme has it lower-pitched.
  • On Zabardast, half of the violin solo is cut-off.

2nd Logo (May 30, 1997)

Visuals: The logo now takes place in a outer-space environment with a blue planet and an asteroid. The star comes in when an asteroid an the blue planet fly away, and the star zooms in. The star than turns into a seven-pointed star which shines. The "MR" text wipes in, and the word "PRODUCTIONS" with the word "PVT.LTD" sliding in.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: It starts with an ethereal string and xylophone soundtrack before heading to a synthesized orchestral stinger when the logo forms.

Availability: This was only seen on Virasat.
