The hot performance of the CUS might have been caused by the mixture ratio being a little LOX rich. This increases thrust at the cost of reduced Isp. The LOX will also run out earlier, leaving more LH2 left in the tank than predicted possibly resulting in the reduced delta-V.

SpaceTrack is apparently mixing up GSAT-19 (object A) and the upper stage (object B)
They've finally found the spacecraft in a drift orbit:

The last part of S-200 separation is taken from an excellent amateur footage captured from Chennai.

Full video was posted previously here

That fiery separation of the solid boosters was scary indeed, as if the flames had enveloped the entire rocket ! And it was a treat to watch the separated boosters tumble, and the core carrying on with its business as if nothing had happened.

That's a great video! (but I wish it was stabilized)
