getting a class attribute using a keyword argument

I have a list of class instances. I wish to get the appropriate class attribute 
in each class instance depending on a SINGLE keyword in the calling class.

How do I get the calling method to correctly recognise the keyword as a keyword 
and not a class attribute? See example code below (which doesn't work).

class tocall:
     def __init__(self):
         self.title = "test" = "name"

def callingmethod(self,**kw):
     for key in kw:
       if tocall.key == kw[key]:
            return tocall.key

which should work as such(but doesn't):

print callmethod(title = "test")
print callmethod(name = "name")
