1st Logo

<img align="right" alt="Manish Films" height="229" src="" title="Manish Films" width="430"/>
Nicknames: "The Dark Indian Goddess", "Durga From Hell", "The Dark Side of Indian Religious Logos", "Move On Up, Murghan; You Got Competition"

Logo: We see on a dark room a supposed big circle. When the candle, above the table, is turned up, we see that the big circle is part of a statue; the statue is a Goddess with lots of weapons (sword, bow and arrows, tridents...) in her arms, and riding a tiger. Below the statue we see yellow flowers and one red rose and other pink one, which are behind the candle. All that mentioned before is above a table with red altar roth. Suddenly, we see "MANISH FILMS" zooming in after appearing with a blur effect.

Trivia: This woman is Durga, the Goddess of Victory of Good over Evil.

FX/SFX: The candle turned up and the text blurring in.

Music/Sounds: A very sinister and dramatic fanfare made by an orchestra after four seconds of silence. The same fanfare plays during the beginning of the opening credits of the film.

Availability: Rare. Only seen on <a href="" target="_self">Paanch Qaidi</a>.

Editor's Note: The dramatic fanfare accompanied by the revealment of the logo will surprise and haunt many people, given the first 4 preceding seconds of silence, and the same fanfare playing at the beginning of the Paanch Qaidi opening credits may also catch some viewers off guard. The darkness doesn't help either. Thankfully, the next logo is less scarier.

2nd Logo
(1985, 1989)
<img align="bottom" alt="Manish Films (1988)" height="229" src="" title="Manish Films (1988)" width="279"/><img align="bottom" alt="Manish Films (1985)" height="232" src="" title="Manish Films (1985)" width="281"/>

Logo: We see a different statue of Durga on a tiger, but now on a podium on a stage or something like that (instead on a dark room). Then the text "MANISH FILMS" fades under the goddess.

Variant: In Meri Zabaan, the lights are white and illuminate intensely, and the text appear in a blur effect, like the previous logo. The text also says "MANISH MOVIES" instead of "MANISH FILMS"

FX/SFX: The red lights turning up slowly and the revealment of the text.

Availability: The Manish Movies variant is seen on <a href="" target="_self">Meri Zabaan</a> and the original Manish Films variant is seen on <a href="" target="_self">Maa Kasam</a>.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo

<img align="right" alt="Manish Films (2001)" height="172" src="" title="Manish Films (2001)" width="408"/>
Logo: On a wall of orange background and red mountains, we see a poster of Durga riding a tiger. At the left side we see incense sticks burning, and in front of the poster we see some red and yellow apples. "MANISH FILMS" in yellow is below the poster.

FX/SFX: The text. The logo is live action.

Music/Sounds: A happy melody made by a synth.

Availability: Seen only on <a href="" target="_self">Kasam</a>.

Editor's Note: The music and absence of darkness in this logo make it be tamer than the previous logos.
