It looks like Cucurbitaceae with huge leaves.


I do not think so.


Need more clues….An idea of scale would  be helpful.

Also whether leaves were opposite or alternate.


I think … is correct.
Leaves are quite variable in Hedera species.
Pl. see https://efloraofindia.com/2011/03/04/hedera/


Maybe. But leaf sizes are too big for Hedera since these leaves are as big as cucumber or similar sp.
I have no idea what is the biggest size of leaf for Hedera.
