Hi Amit,

I can't really see why you need a SC here since your example is not
representative, it would be better if you exemplify with accurate or
meaningful data.

In this case the error is because you have one element missing in the
column path, you are doing this:

UserMovies : {
   user1 : {

That is:
- Column family = UserMovies
- Row Key = user1
- Column name = userid
- Column value = USER-1

As you see you have the super column missing in your update sentence.

Given this example

> USER-1(userid) -- MOVIEABCD (movie) -- 9 (rating)

I think you don't need a SC, make the user the row key, movie the column
name and rating the column value.

Didn't understand your query.
