It looks like this might do what you need:

py> import ast
py> string = " 'msisdn': '7382432382', 'action': 'select',
'sessionId': '123', 'recipient': '7382432382', 'language': 'english'"
py> ast.literal_eval('{%s}' % string)
{'sessionId': '123', 'recipient': '7382432382', 'msisdn':
'7382432382', 'action': 'select', 'language': 'english'}
