Dabangg 2... Sirf Naam hi Kaafi nahi hota ;)
I had some expectations and not too many expectations from Salman Khan Starer "Dabaang 2" Movie but I was disappointed after watching 2nd half of the movie. Chulbul Pandey character is classy by itself and only Salman Khan can give a total justice to that character. Still he needs to learn "how to cry". Most of the dialogues were repeated from earlier movie. Plus, movie is just of 2 hours and after interval movie ends without any thriller scenes & funny dialogues. Overall they should have properly used Prakash Raj as a Villian.
Still i think media will say its super hit and broken all previous records which will be nothing but marketing gimmik.
To me it was not so Dabangg this time. I would rate it as a nice to see it one time movie.
Movie Rating: 2 out of 5.

I was happy to clear PMP (Project Management Professional) Certification from PMI (Project Management Institute) on 23rd May 2011.
It was overall a fascinating journey while Preparing for PMP exam. It took almost 8-9 months. I will be writing more on what study process I followed under the guidance of Pradeep Dhanaraj. He is more of Mentor and close friend to me than a office colleague.
PMP Study process or the approach which we took will be published very soon.
Just saw one of the youTube videos of Marty Cagar on Product Management. This time his topic was on Minimum Viable Product. Based on his opinion it is smallest possible product that really meets 3 criteria:
VALUABLE - Users will choose to buy/use it...
USABLE - Assuming they want to use it, they should figure out HOW to use it...
FEASIBLE - If it meets above 2 criteria we/company should build and use it when it is needed...
Generally the evidence of Minimum Viable Product is collected using prototypes (user prototypes & live data prototypes) and user testing (face to face or split testing).
