The photographs (2) and (3) look more like Thumbergia mysorensis.

Does not look like Thumbergia mysorensis...
the color is different and the lip anatomy is different...

Its thumbergia alright , BUT not mysorensis... some other ... or a
vareital....???
I have been observing these flowers for last thirty - forty years in
various botanical gardens outside India... their colors and anatomy is
a little different than the picture above......

WHat would be helpful if some one has seen them and photographed them
in the wild in the western ghats????

Ushadi ji
You are right, it can't be T. mysorensis

But second and third photographs i think belong to T. coccinea, as suggested by Raghu ji
