If you have .ttf font file (with bold preferable) then you can use font changer to change font.I used it for some weird fonts but never devnagri.Still worth a try.Else there are string of commands to change the Font totally.But that is risky and if it wont work ,factory reset would have to be done..Enjoy.
Note : You need to root the phone before dong anything.
I think Handcent sms has support for devnagri but I dont know.You should check it out.
EDIT 1: Multiling Keyboard has support for Hindi keypad.
