reverse dns lookup is not really special compared to a regular dns lookup.
you just need to look up a special name:

to format the ip address properly use something like:
def rev_dns_string(ip_str):
    nums = ip_str.split('.').reverse()
    nums.extend(('in-addr', 'arpa'))
    return '.'.join(nums)
