The only Unicode font working with "Indic" scripts that I heard of is
Microsoft's Mangal, which has to be used in conjuction with the UniScribe
DLL. But the last time I heard it only supported Devanagari (Hindi, Nepali,
Marathi) and Tamil.

About Urdu, there are several Arabic fonts containing all the extra letters,
but I think that their don't have the high quality customary with Urdu
