It's certainly Ranunculaceae. It looks like Ranunculus.

Although plant is not completely seen but based on the area, undivided basal leaves  orbicular, cordate base and single flower on long stalk and petals more than 5 all suggest Ranunculus reniformis Wall. ex Wight. Please comments.

I agree – it looks very like R. reniformis.

Manudev ji
This species has been reported from Western Ghats, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan and Kerala. In Kerala it has been reported from Chuduvurai Travancore, Travancore high range and Devicolum Munnar Forest.
