: "Mehboob and Nasir Husain's Long Lost Brother", "That's Some Colorful Lightning"

Logo: We see some thunders in a cloudy and rainy sky. Suddenly, a translucent flame of a candle moves towards the screen. When the candle stops moving, a bigger hand-made flame appears from the candle, and "God is Great" in Urdu appears inside it. Below the flame appear an "S" and a "P". In a moment, the flame of the candle freezes, the sky fades to black, with only the flames and letters remaining. Then, the rest of the logo fades to black.

FX/SFX: The rain and the clouds (live action), the live action candle, the hand-made flame from the candle, the texts and the thunders (during all the logo), in addition to the freeze of the candle flame. Typical effects of the time, but nothing bad.

Music/Sounds: The rain, the thunders and a creepy male voice.

Availability: Seen only on Mere Gharib Nawaz, <a href="" target="_self">Mere Sartaj</a> and <a href="" target="_self">Sultan E Hind</a>.

Editor's Note: The nature of this logo will bother many because of the rain and thunder, in addition to the dark voice (a la Mehboob Productions). However, some may not be affected by it.
