Logo: On a dark background, we see two candles and the silhouette of a statue, all over a table with a white blanket. Behind the table, we see orange smoke. Then, some lights are turned up, revealing that the silhouette is Durga (with a row of orange flowers) riding a tiger. Below the tiger there are three orange flowers, and around the right candle there are some vegetables. Then, the logo freezes, and Durga throws a beam to the screen (a la Balakrishna Movies) to form "SHAM RALHAN" when it disappears. The text is below the row of flowers. Then, below the mentioned text, "PRODUCTIONS" appears in a blur effect left-to-right.
FX/SFX: The orange smoke, the lights turning on, Durga throwing the beam when the logo freezes and the texts.
Music/Sounds: A tanpura note, followed by an Indian choral tune until the logo freezes (a stock fanfare, used in many logos from India and Nepal). Then, the opening theme from Captain Barry by Usha Khanna appears until the logo ends.
