Django is an overkill for something like this.

web.py is what you should be looking at. If you already are programming
in python, web.py will give you the web library without trying to introduce
new concepts on URL dispatch, ORM etc.,

Web.py has a very decent db api for most common db operations
You can fall back to raw SQL with ease.
