There’s no shortness of great music coming from Indian superstar A.R. Rahman., the Grammy and Oscar-winning composer has produced a galore of stunning film music since its early years in the industry. Surely “Mumbai Theme” (also referred as  “Bombay Theme Tune”, “Bombay Theme Music” and “Mumbai Theme Tune” in some compilations) is one of those legendary creations that transcend beyond its original ‘soundtrack’ role, taking a life of its own.
