Of course it looks like, but can we also think towards Dioscorea. Is there any more photographs?

Yes Anupam ji
Dioscorea is also possibily, although I thought leaves are more rigid like Smilax. At the same time stipule tendrils of Smilax are not visible in the photograph. Perhaps another photograph with node in focus will help.

yes close up photos or more photos from different angle may help in proper identification.

Yes Dioscorea. The leaves look thicker than D. deltoidea, but then this could be an older branch.
