I have a SQL query which joins three huge tables. (given below)

insert /*+ append */ into final_table (oid, rmeth, id, expdt, crddt, coupon, bitfields, processed_count)
select /*+ full(t2) parallel(t2,31) full(t3) parallel(t3,31)*/
seq_final_table.nextval, '200', t2.id, t3.end_date, '1/jul/2009',123,t2.bitfield, 0
from table1 t1, table2 t2, table3 t3 where
t1.id=t2.id and
t2.pid=t3.pid and
t2.vid=t3.vid and
t3.end_date is not null and
(trunc(t1.expiry_date) != trunc(t3.end_date) or trim(t1.expiry_date) is null);

Below are some statistics of the three tables.
Table_Name RowCount Size(MB)
table1 36469938 532
table2 242172205 39184
table3 231756758 29814

The above query ran for 30+ hours, and returned with no rows inserted into final_table. I didn't get any error message also.
But when I ran the query with table1 containing just 10000 records, the query completed succesfully within 20 minutes.

Can any one please optimize the above query?

First remove ALL hints and analyze how you can optimize it.
You can first read:

Then provide the required and usual information.

You can also have a look at Database Performance Tuning Guide.
