Takkari Donga is a 2002 Telugu western action comedy film directed by Jayant Paranjee. Mahesh Babu, Lisa Ray and Bipasha Basu play the lead roles. The film recorded as Average at box-office.[1][2] The film was dubbed into Hindi as Choron Ka Chor and Tamil as Vetri Veeran.[3][4]


The film starts with Shaka (Rahul Dev) killing his own brother for information, which is also known to another man, Veeru Dada (Kolla Ashok Kumar). In the encounter, Veeru Dada jumps off into a river from a cliff. After 18 years, we have Veeru Dada with a leg cut off giving info to Raja (Mahesh Babu), a mischievous thief who robs banks in style. Raja gives Veeru Dada a share of 50% for all his tip offs. Raja becomes more daring as the price tag on his head increases by thousands.

There is another mischievous thief, Panasa (Bipasha Basu), who, with her uncle, follows Raju so that she can dupe him and escape with all the looted money. As the things go on a frolicking way between Panasa and Raja, the desperate Shaka is searching for Veeru Dada. Veeru Dada realizes that Shaka will kill him soon. Hence, Veeru Dada offers a big diamond to Raja and asks him to escort his daughter Bhuvana (Lisa Ray) to his brother Dharma's place.
