2nd Logo (August 14, 1992-August 7, 1998)

Visuals: A silhouette of a statue of Shiva can be seen along with moving smoke below it on a sunset background.

A gust of wind blows away the smoke, making the company's name more visible.

Technique: Practical effects.

3rd Logo (August 31, 2012-)

Visuals: The first element shown is an apocalyptic landscape with dead trees and torn pieces of ribbon in the middle. Bolts of lightning can also be seen flashing in the clouds. Shortly after, A silhouette of Shiva doing the Tandava emerges from the sun, which causes the torn ribbons to fly and rotate around Shiva, forming a pattern at it along with a Monolith containing the text:


rising from the ground. As the ribbons stop rotating and surround the silhouette, A flash engulfs the entire scene, which causes the background to be white, the ribbon pattern to become solid gold, "PRAMOD" turning into the color black and "FILMS" to become grey.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: The sounds of rumbling can be heard with an announcer saying the dialogue first used in Time Films, followed by the sound of twinkling when the flash appears.
