Hey Sangita,
               I am not sure if bioperl has any direct command for
reciprocal blast.
But it is fairly simple, you can use all vs all blast then post process your
results in finding orthologs according to your cutoff parameters.

Other way is to use OrthoMCL :

 Since you are a beginner it will help you a lot.

Hope this helps.
