Hahahaha…. I am pretty sure that inflorescence didn’t come out of that pot !!!
Flowers look like Cymbidium iridioides.
The plants on the base are most likely to be Oncidium.

Does look like Cymbidium iridioides but seems a bit dark.  

Thank you …!  Any other possibility?
By the way I found many images in the net with many color variation.

Found this one in flower too. I think this could be Cymbidium iridioides. Please advise.

Yes sir this should be Cymbidium iridoides. I am so happy to see the fruits. It means pollinators are present and hence chances of new recruitment are high.
