Hi Princess,
Just gave your script a quick 18 pg read.  Not bad.  A lot of characters flying around in the beginning had me a little confused, but as I read on I got over it.  However, too many characters too quick is never a good thing.  There are some issues with formatting.  Others will give you the details on that, I'm sure!  And your action needs to be four lines or less.  Think: less is more, less is more!
The story, however, is quite different from other things I've read, and the fact that your characters are Indian give your script an edge, I think.  Kinda like the way My Big Fat Greek Wedding took everyone by storm.  
I will keep reading.

Looked at the first 5 pages. It's very ethnic and it won't be for everyone, but the action is really, really good. It's very efficient. The dialogue appeared to be a tad stiff but I don't know if that's part of Indian culture.

I gave the first 10 or so of this a look and found it to be an effortless read, despite a few  (and only a few) English language/grammar inconsistencies which I imagine an Indian producer wouldn't care one iota about in the bigger scheme of things.

Princess Reineeta obviously knows well the target Bollywood market. A quick google search reveals she is a published novelist and produced script writer so I'm left thinking she just wanted an open forum/exposure to place her latest work??

I could see a Bollywood producer picking this up. An entertaining, colourful read with a target market in mind, if the first 10 are anything to go by.

Good luck with this!
