The screening at the India Habitat Centre here saw a packed audience of music lovers from not only the capital but the rest of the country.
The film celebrates Rahman's achievements through his career, which spans two decades.
Considered one of the world's most influential people by Time magazine, the music maestro's work includes over 120 film scores worldwide.
The documentary explores the evolution of his style of music -- a fusion of Eastern sensibilities and Western technology.
Through various turning points in his life and significant milestones, the film showcases an Indian icon who has proved to be no less than a global phenomenon.
A standing ovation by the audience marked the end of the 60-minute documentary, and what followed was a question-answer session featuring Rahman and the film's director with the audience.
Rahman was also asked by the audience to sing a song in his melodious voice but unfortunately due to time constraints, the wish could not be fulfilled.
Rahman has won two Oscars for his music in "Slumdog Millionaire" in 2009 -- Best Original Music Score and Best Original Song, which he shares with lyricist Gulzar.
