Sir,

This seems to be the Cocculus villosus DC. (of "Bengal Plants") = Cocculus hirsutus (L.) Diels. (of FoP) = Cocculus hirsutus (L.) W.Theob. = HUYER / DADAYA / DOIKHOIYE in Bengali.

Thank you,

Regards,

surajit

Very nice pictures Surajit ji
Cocculus hirsutus. from Menispermaceae family.
The male and female flowers are different in this family.
The sepals are hairy, the leaves are villous/hairy too. Male flowers in short axillary panicles.
As against::    the leaves at length are glabrous. Male flowers are in axillary fascicles and the sepals are glabrous too in Cocculus pendulus. Looking forward to find it from you some day.
