Read in 2-column CSV, output many files based on field

Is there a way to read in a two-columned CSV file, and based on the fields in 1st column, output many different files? The input/output looks something like:


Code:
input.csv:
call	Call Mom.
call	Call T-Mobile.
go	Go home.
go	Go to school.
go	Go to gas station.
play	Play music.
play	Play Beatles.


Code:
outputs 3 files:
call.xml
<value><tokens><token>Call</token><token>Mom</token></tokens></value>
<value><tokens><token>Call</token><token>T-Mobile</token></tokens></value>

go.xml
<value><tokens><token>Go</token><token>home</token></tokens></value>
<value><tokens><token>Go</token><token>to</token><token>school</token></tokens></value>
<value><tokens><token>Go</token><token>to</token><token>gas</token><token>station</token></tokens></value>

play.xml
<value><tokens><token>Play</token><token>music</token></tokens></value>
<value><tokens><token>Play</token><token>Beatles</token></tokens></value>

I'm stuck at the part of checking which items in 1st column are the same, then saving all those identical items along with their rows into a new list?? Is this possible to do with shell scripts, or would I need to use Python?

try:

Code:
while read f l
do
  printf "<value>" >> $f.xml
  for w in ${l%[.]}
  do
     printf "<token>$w</token>" >> $f.xml
  done
  printf "</value>\n" >> $f.xml
done < input

Code:
sort input.csv | awk ' { print $1 } ' | uniq | while read file
do
 awk -v FL=$file '$1==FL {
  for (i=2;i<=NF;i++) {
   if(i==NF) printf "%s", "<tokens>"$i"</tokens></value>\n";
   if(i==2)  printf "%s", "<value><tokens>"$i"</tokens>"
   if(i!=NF && i!=2) printf "%s", "<tokens>"$i"</tokens>";
  }
 }' input.csv > $file.xml
done

What if you wanted to add a line at the beginning and end of file?


Code:
call.xml
<head><body>
<value><tokens><token>Call</token><token>Mom</token></tokens></value>
<value><tokens><token>Call</token><token>T-Mobile</token></tokens></value>
</head></body>
