1st Logo

Dhandayuthapani Films (1967)Dhandayuthapani Films (1967, Closing variant)

Nicknames: Early Murghan statue of doom

Logo: On a background with a lot of mountains, we see a small mountain with three buildings and a temple above it. Suddenly, the door of the temple is opened and we see a statue coming down the mountain very fast until he arrives to the valley. The statue consists of a kid with a lance and a peacock. Then, we see a fireball which came from the stairs, a goes in front of the statue. The fireball forms a sudden smoke every time it forms "DHANDAYUTHAPANI FILMS" letter-by-letter, and after this, it goes to the kid.

Variant: There's a closing variant which consists of the logo shown at the beginning of the film, but there's a zoom in to the statue.

Trivia: The kid is Murghan, a God very claimed in Tamil Nadu.

  • Opening variant: The statue moving, the fireball and the forming of text, which all look like stop-motion animation.
  • Closing variant: The zoom.
  • Opening variant: A quick and repetitive sound of a bell, and some crashes of a cymbal. Deiva Cheyal uses a similar melody, but a little slower.
  • Closing variant: Avery rhythmical melody with drums, a nadaswaram (a typical Indian wind instrument) and a less repetitive note of a bell.

2nd Logo

Dhandayuthapani Films (1972)
Logo: We see a temple above a big mountain. The camera zooms into the temple, and we see different statue of the same kid (which is in front of the temple and next to a peacock) from the previous logo. Then, we see a star at the statue's left, and it blinks going to the left side of the logo, forming (letter-by-letter, blinking) the yellow text "DHANDAYUTHAPANI FILMS". When the star finishes with the text, it blinks and goes to the kid's left, while "MADRAS-17" is being formed. The star disappears when it blinks on the chest of the kid.

FX/SFX: The zoom, the star blinking, the texts being formed.

Music/Sounds: The same repetitive sound of a bell, a drum solo and a tune made by violins while the star arrives to the kid.
