Hi Anchit,
You still have time and your application is welcome.
With regards to point 3/4, your issue is that you are plotting the .out 
file which only gives information about the convergence and iterations 
at each times step. See the manual or open the file in a text editor to 
understand more.
The .mov file is NOT a movie, you can plot the data and this is what I 
expect to see plotted for step 1 (see the manual, search for .mov and 
you'll understand).
Keep it up !
PS: don't send forwards to the list...
