Pyar Kiye Jaa (English: Carry on Loving) is a 1966 Hindi language movie directed by C. V. Sridhar starring Kishore Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Mehmood, Om Prakash, Mumtaz, Kalpana and Rajasree. It was a "semi-hit" at the box office. The film is a remake of the Tamil comedy Kadhalikka Neramillai (1964) which was remade into Telugu as Preminchi Choodu in 1965. Actress Rajasree starred in all three versions of the film. Kadhalikka Neramillai was also later remade in Kannada as Preethi Madu Thamashe Nodu. The role played by Nagesh in Tamil version was reprised by Mehmood in the Hindi version and by Dwarakish in the Kannada version.
All the songs were composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal and lyrics were penned by Rajendra Krishan.
According to the book Eena meena deeka: the story of Hindi film comedy by Sanjit Narwekar, Pyar Kiye Jaa was a "frame-by-frame" remake of Sridhar's own Kadhalikka Neramillai.
