Your form looks good for just a few months playing. When it comes to a "heavy" ball, as mentioned, racket heads speed is what makes the difference.

You do want topspin, but, also, much more foreward momentum. Just as a sort of drill, find an old racket that has a cover, just for the head (or cover your racket head with a plastic bag), and "shadow" practice your normal stroke- striving for speed and smoothness against the added resistance- the same stroke, just faster.
