referring to this question, it was determined that Pink Panther theme is actually in Em, but I was wondering if the key could be considered Em even when the theme varies (Consider this video from minute 0:42 onwards), because I tried to improvise some pentatonic Em scales on and it seems there's just something wrong... Could someone explain me why this is happening?

    Suggest you use this as an example, but ask specifically about the modulation, otherwise 'vtc looms!

Not sure whether this question will stand, as it's asking specifics about one song. However, it appears it's modulated into Gm. The redeeming factor may be your last sentence. It sounds like a smooth transition as Em to G is the relative minor to major, then it's morphed into the parallel key, as in from G major to G minor.
