This could be Solena amplexicaulis  (Family: Cucurbitaceae).

I agree with Prashant ji's id.
But the last image looks different, may be of a Vitaceae member.

I agree with Vijaysankar ji, the last picks  looks different, is there any chance of its beeing from different plant, though the leaves are extremely polymorphic in Solena amplexicaulis.
Thanks and Regards.
Nayan.

Hi, Alok ji,
It may not be Solena amplexicaulis as it is distributed in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala & Endemic as per The Cucurbitaceae of India: Accepted names, synonyms, geographic distribution, and information on images and DNA sequences by Susanne S. Renner, Arun K. Pandey. (2013).
Other species are Solena heterophylla Lour. subsp. heterophylla widely distributed all over India &
Solena heterophylla Lour. subsp. napaulensis (Ser.) W.J.de Wilde & Duyfjes distributed in Western Himalaya (Garhwal, Kumaon hills, Uttarakhand) as per The Cucurbitaceae of India
