You can find the movie on YouTube.
Saif is playing the role of Pratap and the movie is about family rivalry which is shown to be continued for ages making the movie feel to be stretched unnecessarily. He doesn’t have much screen time as such and the story is also not too great. So, this is not worth your time.
2. Main Khiladi Tu Anari

It went on to become the top 5 highest-grossing movies of the year. Also, the movie was the first commercial hit for Saif making him a bankable star. This was the first movie to be reviewed by martial arts movie critic Albert Valentin and he rated it 3.5 from 5. You can watch the movie on Amazon Prime.
Saif and Akshay are a treat since their chemistry is adorable to watch. Also, the movie has good action scenes for action lovers with good comic timings. Saif is the one who introduces humor at the correct time. This one is surely worth watching.

The movie stars Akshay Kumar, Sonali Bendre, and Raveena Tandon. It was a commercial success. Comments on this movie were not made by the critics. Currently, it is available on Sony Liv.
Saif is a thief in this one. If you have watched all the movies in which Akshay and Saif have collaborated you will find nothing exciting in this one. The movie is also a typical Bollywood movie with nothing good to serve.
5. Kachche Dhaage 
Kachche Dhaage is an action thriller. This Saif Ali Khan movie is directed by Milan Lutharia and produced by the Taurani brothers. The movie also stars Namrata Shirodkar, Ajay Devgan, and Manisha Koirala.

Saif is supporting the male lead in this one. The storyline is good but improvements could have been made in direction. If you are a Saif Ali Khan fan you shouldn’t watch this one because the script and the movie don’t do justice to his character. From the start, he is the one who is making sacrifices and in the end, too he dies.

The movie was a commercial success with highly positive reviews. It is available on Netflix.
Saif is playing the role of Vinod. His role is good in this one but small. But it is not worth watching because you can’t relate to it and it seems that they are overacting. It seems inspired by Ramayana, but not up to the mark.

Rahil is the name of Saif in this one. A playboy who is rich and quite arrogant too. However, Preity is the bright spot of the movie and outshines Khan in terms of performance. But this movie is good to watch for the issue it revolves around.

Saif’s role is inspired by Captain Anuj Nayyar, MVC from Jat Regiment. Everyone in the movie is playing the role of our great heroes who sacrificed their lives for the sake of saving our motherland.

Saif is playing the role of Langada Tyagi who is Lago in Shakespeare’s play. This movie is the most different on the Saif Ali Khan movies list.

Saif is Ranvir Singh in this movie and he is just superb. He looks so awesome, the movie has so many twists, too good songs, and a top-notch performance by the whole cast. It is again a good choice to watch.
16. Love Aaj Kal 
Next on the list of Saif Ali Khan movies is Love Aaj Kal, a romantic movie. This Saif Ali Khan film is directed by Imitiaz Ali. This is the first movie directed by Saif and Dinesh Vijan's house ‘’The Illuminati Films’’.

Saif is playing a double role in it. The movie is good and Saif’s acting too is heart-touching. He has all the emotions under control, he plays goofy, carefree, nervous, idiotic, intense, angry, and depressed all in that one movie. One should give this movie a try for the sake of him.

This is a socio-political drama based on the controversial policies of the government in the field of education. It is directed by Prakash Jha.
This Saif Ali Khan movie has a strong ensemble cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Manoj Bajpayee, and Prateik Babbar.

Saif plays Gautam Kapoor, an urban guy. Speaking about the movie, it is light-hearted, fun, and romantic, though the movie after the interval is a bit dragging since you already know the end it feels so. Though, the movie is criticized for some facts shown in the movie. The performance of the cast is really appreciable.

Shubha Shetty- Saha of Mid- Day gave it 3 stars rating the ‘’powerful story is diluted by the use of too many cinematic liberties and a rather lazy screenplay, Flaws aside it talks of a real concern facing all of us while taking a flight of fantasy.’’ You should try to watch it.

The movie revolves around a character based on the life and times of Mary Ann Evans commonly known as Fearless Nadia, the first stuntwoman of India. But the movie failed to receive the audience’s attention, critics mostly gave positive reactions about the movie. It can be watched on Netflix.
Rustom is the name of the character played by Saif. Kangana takes over every scene she appears in, the story has a strong emotional quotient, riveting second hour, and nail-biting finale as stated by Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama. The movie should be watched at least once since Vishal creates a masterpiece.
21. Chef

This movie didn’t do well at the box office and it received mixed reviews from the critics. It can be watched on Disney Hotstar.
The title of the movie describes the movie, Kaalakandi which is a Marathi slang for the time when everything goes utterly wrong. And the protagonist (Saif) has everything going on wrong in his life.
However, this movie is not for everyone, those who keep the choices of their movie a bit experimental and edgy. It is a good one for them. Since it is an off-the-beaten-track of Bollywood.

Saif is the only focus of the movie but he proves that he is the right choice, to be the focus. He is the hunter or Gossain as called in the movie. The reason to watch this movie are its visuals, cinematography, direction, and the strong performance of Saif. If you are a hardcore fan of Saif it is the one that should not be missed.

Saif is essaying the role of Jaswinder Singh. Saif and the cast have done remarkable work in terms of acting. But the way the story unfolds is quite illogical at times.

Saif is playing the role of Udaybhan Singh Rathore who was Aurangzeb’s royal guard. And he is killing in terms of acting and has taken his role beyond what was written in the story. It is a must-watch for the fact that it showcases Maratha's bravery, robust filmography, and visceral battle scenes.
26. Bhoot Police 
Bhoot Police is a horror-comedy movie. This movie is directed by Pavan Kriplani. This Saif Ali Khan movie was not released in theatres due to Covid-19 Pandemic.
It was directly released on Disney Hotstar. The movie also stars Yami Gautam Dhar, Jacqueline Fernandez, Arjun Kapoor, and Javed Jaffrey. The movie uses viral trends which makes it more interesting.
