Maine Pyar Kiya (Hindi: मैने प्यार किया, Urdu: مینے پیار کیا) is a 1989 Bollywood movie directed by Sooraj R. Barjatya and starring Salman Khan and Bhagyashree. It was dubbed in to English as When Love Calls and in Spanish as Te Amo. The Hindi roughly translates into English as "I Fell In Love".
Maine Pyar Kiya was one of the most successful Bollywood movies of the 1980s and made Salman Khan a major star. The film is a departure from the gritty and violent films that were so popular in the 1970s and early 80s.

Although they have been friends for years, Karan and Kishan have grown apart and have little in common. The widowed Karan is a poor engineer who lives in a humble house in the country. Kishan is a rich man with a vast business empire with little time for old friends. However, when Karan prepares to work abroad, he turns to Kishan to solve a problem. Will Kishan let Karan's daughter Suman (Bhagyashree) stay at his house? Kishan cannot turn down his old friend's request and Suman comes to live with Kishan's family.
At first country girl Suman is ill at ease in the huge mansion. She is befriended by Kishan's son Prem (Salman Khan), who assures her that he has no romantic interest in her and that a boy and a girl can be platonic friends. The pair share outings and confidences and all seems to be going well.
Then Prem takes Suman to a party put on by some of his rich friends. They humiliate Suman and accuse her of scheming to marry Prem. Suman leaves in tears and distances herself from Prem. At that point, he realizes that he has fallen in love with her. With aid of his mother (who likes the unassuming Suman) and his comic friend Manohar, Prem sets out to win Suman's heart.
He succeeds ... but their romance is balked by Prem's father Kishan, who does not want his son to marry a poor nobody. He prepares to send Suman home in disgrace. At this unpropitious moment, Karan returns from overseas. Kishan accuses him of plotting to match Prem and Suman. Karan and Kishan quarrel; Karan and Suman then return to their village.
Prem refuses to accept the separation. He defies his father and is disinherited. He goes to Suman's village and begs to be allowed to marry her. Karan, angered by Kishan's accusations, says that he will allow the marriage on one condition: Prem must prove that he can support a wife by his own efforts.
Will the spoiled rich man's son survive as a poor laborer? Can he make the money necessary to prove his worth? Will his father and his rich friends let him marry Suman? There are several surprising plot twists before a happy ending.
The Maine Pyar Kiya soundtrack was quite successful. Suman's role was sung by the famous playback singer Lata Mangeshkar; S.P Balasubramaniam sang for Prem. The immensely popular opening track, Aate Jaate, is said to have been inspired by Stevie Wonder's 1984 single, I Just Called to Say I Love You. Also, the track, Mere Rang Mein Rangne Wali is supposedly inspired by Swedish rock band, Europe's 1986 single, The Final Countdown.
