1st Logo (August 15, 1986)


NOTE: This logo (as well as the next logo) is NOT Nazi-related.

Visuals: On footage of an ocean with the sun rising, there is a green swastika in a green box zooming out. As it stops in the middle, the text

VIDYASHREE FILMS
PRESENTS

in green appears below.

Trivia: It should be noted that even though it was adopted by the Nazis in the 1920s, the swastika originated in the late Paleolithic period (the oldest known archaeological record is from 10,000 BC in Mezine, modern Ukraine), and has appeared all across the world, especially in Asia, where it has been used by Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism from the 5th century BC up to today. It usually means "good luck". This logo uses the original version of the symbol, instead of the Nazi version which was tilted at a right angle.

Technique: Live action and rostrum camera.

Audio: A peaceful tune.

Availability: Only seen on Sadaa Suhagan.

2nd logo (October 6, 1989)



Visuals: On a black background, there is a bold swastika spinning and changing colors quickly (red, gold, blue, orange and white, several times, but in a different order some of the times). When the swastika turns orange, it stops spinning, but it zooms out a little bit more. Then the text "VIDYASHREE PICTURES" appears below the swastika, and turns on, so the light is blue, but the text is white.

Technique: Rostrum camera and cel animation.

Audio: A creepy whoosh, followed by a shrill of a violin and dark synth tune. When the text appears, there's another whoosh.

Availability: Seen only on Kala Bazaar.
