Transparent plastic material

I made this bottle in 3ds max and rendered in vray using as the reference. As u can see It looks nowhere near to the reference. Is there any way i can make the material dark and less refractive at the edges ? i have used fog color to give that color to the material.

Does your mesh have thickness to it? Also, your bottle appears to be empty, and the one in the link is full so the results will be different.
I like to learn.

Thanks Dylan.
Yes , i've added shell modifier to give it some thickness. I think it is happening due to refraction from the water. Anyways thanks again .

You need a photo of an empty water jug to use as reference. Use this as a ref:
